It’s that time of year again! Get your fishing gear ready for the 5th Annual Catch-A-Dream Pickwick Lake Bass Classic presented by MaxxSouth Broadband. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, June 17th at the Pickwick Lake State Park. Blast off will be at “safe light”. Safe light is a fishing term for when it is light enough outside for the water to be traveled on safely. A representative from each team must register at the First Baptist Church in Counce, TN on Friday, June 16th from 4:30 PM until 8:00 PM.
Catch-A-Dream is a non-profit organization, based out of Starkville, MS, that grants once-in-a-lifetime hunting and fishing experiences to children 18 and younger who suffer from life-threatening illnesses. Through these adventures, the program instills in these children a message of encouragement and hope at a time when they need it the most. A designated Catch-A-Dream host accompanies each family and, along with outfitters and local volunteers, facilitate their dream. In the summer of 2013, a vision was introduced to expand the Catch-A-Dream Foundation to the tri-state area of North Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama, thus creating the Pickwick Lake Bass Classic.
