Our 1st Walk for Women was a one day walk to promote breast cancer awareness. The first 2 years proved so popular we decided to expand it to a 3 day event, with the walk on Sunday. A strong supporter of our cause, Sam Carrasco, suggested a bay fishing tournament to encourage the men in our community to become more involved. The Wahoo Saloon (now Laguna BOB) graciously donated their dock and other facilities to host our first tournament in 2005. It was a great success and quickly became what we refer to as our “Fun” day.  A tradition that Louie’s Backyard continues today. Read Fishing Tournament Rules

Grab your pole, a group of friends and come join us for fun, prizes, and lots of fish!  Registration for our 2016 Fishing Tournament will be from 6-8pm on Oct 7th at our “Cowgirls Kicking Cancer Casino Night and Auction” at Louie’s Backyard.

* Please refer to the Fishing Tournament Rules for more information
** Goody Bag and Trophy Sponsorships are available. These sponsorships enable us to continue to raise funds to support our cause.  Please contact Christy Carrasco, 956-459-7079, jakesspi@yahoo.com.
