Haddon Lake Park
In 2017, with help from Toyota and Flambeau, we launched the Ike's Hook 'Em Early Kids Fishing Event. For many young people, a chance to experience the outdoors, receive free gifts from our proud supporters, like Abu Garcia and Pure Fishing, and win great prizes in the fishing tournament.
The Ike Foundation will return to Haddon Lake Park on May 12, 2018 for the second annual Ike's Hook 'Em Early Fishing Event. Chaperones will need to register themselves and the children who will be attending with them.

In 2017, we were able to provide five $1500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors who were committed to volunteering in their community, particularly in the areas of fishing and environmental/wildlife conservation. In 2018, thanks to the generous contributions of our supporters, we are able to offer five $3000 scholarships! We are now accepting applications for the 2018 scholarship, please submit your essay, acceptance letter and letter of recommendation by April 1, 2018.

TD Convention Center
The Ike Foundation was booth #2848 at the 2018 Bassmaster Classic. It was an amazing event! Thanks to Flambeau, we were able to give away 100 Flambeau tackle boxes!
There was also scavenger hunt in the EXPO center. Three clues were given each day at the set times. The clues lead spectators to Mike’s sponsors’ booths where they needed to take a photo and tag with #whereintheworldisike. The best photos after the 3 days won a grand prize of tackle -$500 value.
There were pillows hidden in the arena before the public arrived. The pillows (3 a day) had tags with instructions to take photos with the pillow and hashtag it. The pillow was the prize.
Ike was at the expo on Sunday, taking photos with fans and signing autographs. Kids were also welcomed to enjoy the Berkley lure coloring station, temporary tattoos and more!
