About the Event

Welcome to the North American Fishing Challenge

Adult & Teen Challenge centers across the US and Canada have come together to create an international app-based fishing tournament to benefit Adult & Teen Challenge programs with this third annual event.  Fashioned after a very successful fishing tournament in Minnesota, the North American Fishing Challenge will be held on August 10, 2024, and anglers across the U.S. and Canada can fish in their local fishing hole and designate which center will benefit from their fundraising.  Five divisions will be included in the tournament: walleye, bass, pike/muskie, trout/salmon, and panfish (bluegills, crappies, perch, rock bass, and other sunfish). Tournament division will be chosen by the angler prior to the tournament when registering with the online app.

Tournament Director, Daniel Emond, knows that catching fish during a tournament is important, but he also knows that those who participate in the North American Fishing Challenge are not just interested in fish.  They want to save lives of those who are facing alcohol and drug addictions through the highly-ranked services of Adult & Teen Challenge.  Through sponsorships and donations from businesses and individuals, this tournament has the potential to raise more than $300,000 this fourth year!

Thousands of dollars in prizes will be awarded, and a special fundraising prize will be won by one team in the US and one team in Canada!

All ages and skill levels of anglers from across the U.S. and Canada are welcome!
