Holes 4 Heroes:
Holes 4 Heroes is a special Ice Fishing Contest designed to honor our military, both at home and abroad.
In addition to the traditional prize-filled ice fishing tournament, we set up a unique "Hole of Honor" which features a live video feed so that families of deployed soldiers can ice fish for free while being linked via video to their beloved soldier.
Proceeds from Holes 4 Heroes support the ministries of Fishing for Life, including our Military R&R program, our High C's Fishing Camps, our summer lake events, and our Deep C's Fishing Clubs.
It is our honor to allow all Military members, both current and former, and their immediate families to attend Holes 4 Heroes at no charge.
We have great prizes each year including many door prizes given away throughout the contest. Prizes are thanks to our generous sponsors such as Clam, Frabill, Aqua-Vu, Strikemaster, Dick's Sporting Goods and Cabela's.
What a great event!
