Each boat was given the choice of Make A Wish-USO or Flowers 4 MS for part of the registration fee to be donated to. FLW Outdoors offers anglers worldwide the opportunity to compete for millions of dollars in cash and prizes over the course of almost 200 tournaments operated annually. LCN will be working with the the Bass Federation of Connecticut and FLW Outdoors who are starting the Student Angler Foundation meant to get the high school young adults involved with fishing. “Let’s face it,” notes Boucher, “much like the scouts and youth camps, everything we can do to bring youth outdoors is going to impact our campgrounds in the future.” Based on his catch during the tournament, Boucher qualified to fish the TBF/FLW Regionals being held on the Connecticut River this fall.
