Mobridge Pollock High School Fishing Tigers Hand Out Fillets



MOBRIDGE, S.D. — (DRG News) On December 31, 2013 the Mobridge-Pollock High School (MPHS) Fishing Tigers handed out 106 Walleye fillets to 33 residents in the Mobridge area.  They got back lots of smiles and thank you’s with the occasional hug.

The group was motivated to start the club by the Berkley High School Fishing Challenge. The club plans to fish a lot, fish in tournaments, help young kids get started fishing, learn some new fishing techniques, test fishing equipment, work with the local fishery department and do some environmental clean-ups.  Males and females, grades 9-12, make up the club members.

On January 4, 2014 the group is holding it’s first fishing tournament in Mobridge, S.D. as a fund raiser.  Fishing times are from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Anglers may be asked to donate their catch for their Walleye “Hand-Off”.  The MPHS Fishing Tigers will be delivering fillets to elderly and shut-ins on Jan 5.  The cost for the tournament is just $50 for a 2 or 3 person team.

Anyone with questions, would like to request a delivery of Walleye to the elderly or shut-in, or would like to be in the tournament can contact Martin Looyenga, Fishing Tigers Coach, by calling 605-845-5290 in the evenings.  Martin can also be reached at
