Michael Ernst Charity Event Results and Recap

We had 37 total anglers unite from all over Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama and as far away as Minnesota Saturday February 22nd 2014. $1931 was raised for Mike Ernst that is running the London Marathon to raise money for the Whizz Kids Charity. We had over 50 people attend our awards banquet at the Cherokee Steak House and Marina that lasted more than 3 hours. It was the largest kayak fishing tournament that has been held in the state of Tennessee. Over $3000 in prizes were awarded with prizes going to big fish, top 3 places to total inches, and one place to the most species caught.

The fishing was slow, but the fellowship, and fun was big. It was a great day to be outdoors with air temperatures in the low to mid 60’s and blue bird skies.
