Student hopes to lure fishing fans to water for cancer fundraiser

UW-Green Bay/Bellin College of Nursing student Tim Lautenslager is calling on avid fishermen to get out on the Bay this weekend, for the first-ever Jordan Olson Musky Derby. Lautenslager and Olson are lifelong friends with years of memories made on the water. With Olson in a fight against skin cancer, Lautenslager and others felt it appropriate to combine their favorite pastime with a fundraiser to help Olson with his medical bills. The catch and release Derby will be held from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14 with launch at Green Bay Metro boat launch and awards at Smokey’s on the Bay at 3 p.m. The entry for the two-man teams is $200, with fisherman catching fish and taking photos of them with winners totaling up the inches to determine placement. About 60 percent of the registration fee will go to Olson with the rest a payout to winners. See more.
