Every year the Minden community comes together in a number of ways to raise money for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and again this year, along with the huge auction/raffle, they'll host the Minden St. Jude Bass Tournament on Lake Bistineau.

This year's bass tournament will be held March 12 with the weigh in at Lake Bistineau State Park.

Tournament hours are 6:30 am until 3:00 pm with a 5-fish limit per team.  Entry fee is $50 per individual or $100 per 2-person team.  The optional Big Bass entry fee is $10.
