Our Mission

Our mission is to get more kids fishing and into the outdoors, especially youth in areas where those activities are not readily available.

How the Foundation Has Started and Grown

Our Foundation began with shipping lightly used fishing gear to deserving local groups to now being able to ship brand new Abu Garcia Ike Dude rods, Flambeau tackle boxes and a variety of soft plastics to schools, fishing groups, Boy/Girl Scouts and many other organizations across the country.

Plans for the Future

Our goal for the future is to double the amount of youth we can reach through the sport of fishing. We are working on partnering with groups from all over the country to hold “Ike AmBASSador” fishing events and Clinics, continue to send out donations to groups and also be able to award scholarships to many more graduating seniors, who are continuing with their education.
