Snoppy Pole Contest

My good friend and guiding colleague, Dave Kinney from Rivers Plus Guiding, came up with a excellent idea to have a charity event on the Stevens Point Flowage, and I was honored to be a part of it.

The first annual Snoopy Pole Classic was held on Sunday June 12th. We had contestants of all ages. Fishing hours were from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Each contestant had to use a 3 foot Snoopy, Batman, Mickey Mouse, Barbie, etc... fishing pole. Let me tell you it was very challenging trying to catch the big ones and it sure was a lot of fun.

Contestants caught, musky, walleyes, bass, catfish and bluegills. This was just for braggin rights, we had trophy's for the 4 top fisher people. A special award of recognition was presented to Dave Kinney, in appreciation for organizing and planning the first annual Snoopy Pole Classic from all his fishing buddy's at PaPa Joe's bar.

It was an excellent turnout. There were 73 contestants that fished to benefit the Children's Miracle Network. Fisher people raised $1460.00 and Ma Joe (Dorothy Jakusz) donated an additional $200.00 for a grand total of $1660.00. A special thanks to Keith Strong for donating a detail job also to one of the contestants. Also A special thanks to Leslie Kinney for making us look more muscular and with all the excellent food that was prepared. A great time was had by all.

Here are the Big Fish Winners.

Large Mouth Bass 18 1/8 inches Mike Jakusz
