This year saw a lot of fisherman turnout in Kapuskasing for the annual fishing challenge.

According to Special Events Coordinator Kelly Kraby, this year’s fishing challenge was helped along by some terrific weather and the most teams ever registered.

She says this year’s fishing challenge raised nearly $3,775 for the firefighters.

Kraby says the funds raised will be put back into the community by the volunteer firefighters and helps keeps events like the Festival of Lights up and running year after year.
