Sorry, I don't know the names of the baits we used. The captain and first mate worked hard, changing baits trying to put more fish in our boat. My boat went 3-4, the biggest was 53 3/8", around 35# and was the biggest fish of the day. This was the 1st Annual RPF Muskie Tournament and there were 11 boats with 44 fisherman. Most of the boats caught 5 fish and one boat went 7-11 on muskie. This outing was put together in 6 weeks. More notice will be given next year for anyone interested in participating.

All the funds raised from by the Ray Park Foundation (RPF) are donated to groups helping introduce kids to outdoor activities and to organizations dedicated to cancer pre-screening for both men and women. The RPF was able to do some great things over the past 12 months. 3 of Ray Howell’s Kicking Bear Basecamp 148 summer camps were fully funded, allowing more than 1,000 kids to attend these camps for free. Kicking Bear Basecamp's are geared toward introducing young people to outdoor activities like archery and camping.

Through the RPF Mentoring Program 10 young hunters were given a chance to harvest their first deer at Valhalla Rach. In addition, part of the funds raised help a foundation offer free PSA tests, tests instrumental for early detection of prostate cancer. And these are only a couple of specific examples of what the Foundation does!

Another event put on by the Ray Park Foundation is the Quad Shootout on July 17&18. Go to facebook and search for Quad Shoot Out for more information.
