Over 700 anglers attended the Kids Fishing For A Cure ice fishing derby on December 28, 2014. A little over $22,000 was raised for this fantastic organization. They do invaluable work supporting families who have children diagnosed with cancer. Among those who attended were Totoy and Myrna Cleofas. Mang Totoy is a longtime Filipino Journal reader who decided to try his hand at ice fishing for the first time after reading an earlier article. Even though it was very cold that first trip out, he and his wife are determined to ice some fish before the end of winter. I had the flu over the holidays unfortunately but that didn’t stop my wife Divine and our girls from competing at the derby. They didn’t catch any fish but still had fun trying and proving that they don’t need me to go fishing. Get out and enjoy a winter activity this season.
