Who we are


Mid-Coast Smackdown was started in 2018 by two friends who love to fish and wanted to find a way to help children. They knew a young girl who was battling Leukemia and raising funds for St. Baldrick's Foundation to help fund research. What a better way to support a young girl's battle than bringing friends together to fish and raise money along the way. Who can say no to a weekend of fishing when it benefits a worthy cause?

How it started


The first fishing tournament was held in May 2018. From our humble beginnings of a tournament with 8 teams, we have come a long way. Our tournament in 2019 had 34 teams entered, along with a live and silent auction, and raffles.

In 2019, we expanded our efforts and had the fishing tournament, bracelet sales, and participated in other organization's fundraising efforts by donating raffle items, auction items, food, and man power.

How it's going


2020 proved to be a difficult year for everyone. We were able to pull the finishing stages of the fishing tournament together when we were finally given the green light 2 weeks before the event. We ended up with 51 registered teams, and had an amazing event. We grossed over $100,000, and had tournament payouts totaling $29,000. We were able to successfully meet our commitment to the 2019 Mid-Coast Kid, Jordan Cutshaver. Our success also allowed us to donate to St. Baldricks, St. Judes, and additional families and organizations in need. It was a good turnout for sure.
