Charity Fishing Tournament by Naucratius West Michigan

Visit the Facebook Event Page here:

Cost: $50

Shotgun Start at 6:00 am at the Holland Pier-head.

Pull lines at Noon. 

Weigh in at 1pm.

This tournament has been set up to address hunger in the Holland area. All funds raised will be split between Community Action House Kitchen (Holland) and The Order of Naucratius - West Michigan to continue to feed Hungry West Michiganders throughout the area.

Our sponsors have made their donations with the understanding that the anglers are donating their fish and then get to participate in a great raffle. Our hope is that all fish will be donated to The Order of Naucratius. (This year we will give teams 2 extra raffle tickets per donated fish. We're grateful for all the fish that you are willing to offer as we try to feed hungry Hollanders). 

This is a family-friendly FUN charity event. We ask you to share your tips on the radio (channel 72) and to keep your comments PG.

If you are not in line by 1:00 pm your team will not qualify for any prizes.

We will fish predicted seas of 1-3' or less. (or game day call). In the event that the event is cut short due to weather, the weigh-in will be held 45 min after the cancellation and points will be awarded. If small craft advisories are in effect we will not fish. Sunday, August 26, will be the makeup date if weather prohibits us from fishing Saturday.

There will be a raffle at the weigh-in.

There is an optional captain's meeting at Big Lake Brewing on Friday, August 24, at 7 pm. I'd like to buy you a beer (or soda pop) and answer questions and tell you about Naucratius. You are welcome to bring your crew but they have to buy their own beer :)
