Big fish tourney on Smith Lake

Smith Lake anglers on Saturday, Feb. 17, will not only be trying to pull in walleyes, but raising money to fight cancer. Organizers say the Fishing for the Cure Ice Fishing Challenge will seek to raise $50,000 for cancer this year. In 2017, the group exceeded its $30,000 goal by pulling in $38,000 for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Douglas County.

Created by a small group of Alexandria Industries employees, Fishing for the Cure held its first event in 2007. That year, 112 people fished and raised $620. If it reaches this year goal, it will have given more than $150,000 over its history to the fight against cancer.
