EAST GRAND FORKS, MN (WDAZ-TV) – Firefighters in East Grand Forks are worried about one of their biggest fundraisers of the year.
About 60 teams are currently signed up for the Cats Incredible Cat Fishing Tournament but they're hoping that number will at least cross 100.
Last year, anglers came from as far as Canadian provinces and Nebraska in order to catch 15-pound fish.
It's all in an effort to raise about $10,000 for the East Grand Forks Fire Department.
"The tournament goes towards things at the fire hall,” said Paul Hansen, an organizer. “We've purchased a lot of furniture from the fire station for it so the city doesn't have to buy it.”
The tournament is next weekend.
