Kiwanis-Marco Bassmasters fishing tournament on Lake Maxinkuckee June 16

The 8th annual Culver Kiwanis and Marco Bassmasters two-person team bass fishing tournament will be held Saturday, June 16 on Lake Maxinkuckee.

Additional door prizes will be announced at the tournament.

Check in at the Culver Marina and live well check begins at 5 a.m., and launch will be from Culver Marina. Marina launch is by winch from eye hooks at front and rear of boats.

Tournament hours are eight hours from legal sunrise. A pre-tournament meeting will take place at 5:30 a.m. at the Culver Marina, southeast corner of the lake inside channel. Coffee is offered in the morning by Culver Kiwanis and donuts by Culver Subway.

Weigh-in and release of fish will be at Culver Marina. Cash prizes will be awarded after the weigh-in, at the conclusion of the tournament. Hot dogs and soft drinks will be provided at the awards ceremony.

The event is a major fund-raiser to benefit the youth of Marshall County, says Kiwanis member and co-organizer Bob Volkert. The public is invited to the launch and weigh-in ceremonies, he adds.
