Women to get own event in annual fishing tournament

Created: 05/05/2014 5:30 AM WHEC.com

Dozens of women will cast out their lines on Monday. It's the first time women will get their own event during the Casting for Caring Tournament hosted by the Red Cross. The fishing tournament, which has been traditionally focused on men, will offer a $1,000 prize to the woman who catches the biggest fish. The fishing portion of the event runs from 1 - 5 p.m. at the Rochester Yacht Club on St. Paul Boulevard.

Following the fishing tournament, there will be a Cinco de Mayo celebration featuring food, entertainment, and a silent auction. The men's tournament will take place Tuesday, with two different groups setting sail in the morning and afternoon.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at the door.
