ABOUT THE EVENT /

JOIN US FOR THE
14th Annual Fishin' Chicks
 
The event was started in 2010 by Laurie and Jeff Soderlund. Laurie had been was diagnosed with breast cancer and they wanted to become advocates for breast health.
They committed to 10 years of a fishing fundraiser on Spider Lake in Iron River, WI. 
The community rallied around them, the event grew, and in a decade they raised $100,000.
In 2020, the Soderlunds passed the torch and the event was moved to the Pike Lake Chain.
Sadly, Laurie passed away just before the 2020 event.
For 2 years, the event raised an additional $10,000 each year.
In 2022, we raised a staggering $20,000, bringing the grand total to

$140,000 donated for breast health.

In 2023 the fishing will again be on Twin Bear Lake
with access from the Twin Bear Campgrounds.



People everywhere have come to love Fishin' Chicks.
During our event, everyone is allowed to participate but
only LADIES can compete in the fishing tournament.
The event is designed to bring awareness to breast health and raise money for compassion care for breast cancer patients.
It takes place on a free state wide fishing day so no license is required.
The MEN do the work so the ladies can play.
