The Dick Hiley St. Jude Bass Classic was founded in 1998 by a group of anglers from Minnesota and Wisconsin. This inspirational tournament unites their two passions, fishing and raising money to support the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
 
Each year, anglers come together in Wabasha to enjoy two full days of fishing on the Mississippi River. This group of anglers fundraise year-round for the tournament and to date have raised over $2 million to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude.

Register

Enjoy fishing, weigh-ins hosted by Chip Leer and dinner featuring a local St. Jude patient story.

Entry fee: $350 until April 1
$400 from April 1 – April 29

Host

Some anglers choose to host a banquet or benefit in their home town to solicit donations. These events can be a lot of work, but can also raise a substantial amount of money.
