2023 Tom Cook Memorial Day Open

The annual Tom Cook Memorial Day Open is back again! We are returning to Fisherman's landing at Muskegon Lake on Memorial Day - May 29th 2023 - 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:As many in the W. Michigan fishing community know, Aaron Coon - a local Reeths Puffer HS angler - tragically lost his battle with cancer recently. At the beginning of the year, we threw around this idea of bringing a big jackpot event back to this side of the state - we wanted to do something big and special. At this point, the interest from anglers just isn't there - we were on the fence with cancelling the event outright. We are now presented with the opportunity to do something truly meaningful for a local family suffering not only the unimaginable loss of Aaron, but the reality of the financial hardships that come along with it. 

In order to make this event accessible to a broader field and maximize the donation we are able to make, we are changing the entry fee to $150 per boat. Registration will be morning of at the ramp. 

In honor of Tom, Aaron, and our local fishing community, we hope you will consider joining us. If you would like to support the family in other ways, the best venue we have found is to make contact or find details on the Reeths Puffer Fishing Team Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/RPHSfishing

We will be in contact with you if you have already registered for the event to coordinate a full refund.
