Open Challenge To All Fishermen And Women

Recommended Posts

you could send them to me and I will donate $70 on DSG's behalf if that makes it easier.  I spend a lot of money there.

Thank you Dicks Sporting Goods for your participation and I would like to say thanks to all who have made a concentrated effort in raising money for a great cause , you guys and gals are the best and I am proud to be a small part of this web site !!!

Here is what I propose

 

1- give the marathon tickets to someone who would actually use them.  They can donate whatever they think the tickets are worth.

 

2- I will send Nitro my address and he can send me the gift certs.  I will donate the $70 on DSG's behalf.  I will give them to Taylor and Nicole who will spend them in 12 seconds or less.

I'm new to the bass fishing community and am only a lonely kayak bass fisherman on the local ponds of Fort Hood Texas. I am in the army and am participating in my first Pro/Am sept 20th called fishin for freedom sponsored by a vet who was disabled in iraq. the biggest Ive caught largemouth wise was just under 4 lbs so I will also accept the 4 lb challange. I will do everything I can to meet that goal and I commend you for the idea for this. Im set to deploy again on my 4th deployment in under 9 years and am glad that I can be a part of this while im still stateside.

You sent a payment  

Dear Homer Harrelson,

You sent a payment for $100.00 USD to Tackle The Storm Foundation.

Please note that it may take a little while for this payment to appear in the Recent Activity list on your Account Overview.

That's the $70 for the Dicks certificates and another $30 for the three over 5 lb I caught while messing around in a pond that I built and stocked 4 years ago.

 

Thanks to Nitrofreak for getting these donated in the first place.

Lee, you are catching some hogs my friend!!!!!!! Good for you!!!!

 

 

 

 

I have to admit, my 4# goal has not worked out for me very well.

Let me go ahead and say now, I will now donate on the "00mod" plan......50cents for every fish I catch, PLUS a combo($7.50) for any over 4#.

 

this helps me and the kids. Me, because now I will HAVE to keep a fishing log, plus get to donate on the regular. Helps the kids in that, lets face it they need the help and a smile!

I never like to lower a goal, but for the smile of a child, I am willing.

5-6-7 pounders are not that big a deal around here. I catch 20-25 over 5 lbs a year.  I had 3 over 8 in an afternoon a few years ago.

 

I built a 2.5 acre pond for a client 4 years ago and we stocked it and have been managing it for trophy bass.  I stocked it with 750 fingerlings after we had a stable population of minnows and blue gills.  Most of those fish that survived are over 5 lbs now.  It's almost like cheating.  :rolleyes7:

It has been a long time since I have visited this site and I am very pleased to see that there are a ton of great people that still frequent it. I ran a charity organization for a few years that gave kids the opportunity to fish for the first time and I have to say that seeing the smiles on their faces is worth everything to me. I have run into hard times lately due to losing a great job but I have just ventured into the challenging world of car sales. I pledge a minimum of $100 from my first commission check, but my goal is going to be $500. I will be working very hard to make this happen. It makes my heart feel good to take on this goal in my life.  I support what you are doing 100%.

While fishing with Glenn, I was able to hear the story of BassResource and its beginnings. I also heard the beginnings, motives, and *** of Tackle the Storm.

That should be a post or an article, the origins story of BR.  I'd love to hear that one.  (hint hint Mr. Glenn) :)

He told the story at dinner one night too.

 

He won it in a poker game.   :cheesy:

Jeff's total for the year was 453 bass x.50= $226.50. I just submitted my matching donation.

Well, since I did not have the year I was expecting, I just matched Jeff and Dwight's donation.  I only had 8 fish over 5 lbs so I just added $144 in donation to even things out.

 

Who's up for a new challenge next year?
