Brooke Howard was a 14-year-old eighth grader at Spring Hill School when she passed away on March 11, 2014. Folks said Brooke "had a heart of gold." She loved the outdoors and enjoyed going to the lake, which inspired the fishing tournament to benefit a memorial fund set up to honor her memory.
There will be sponsored hourly paybacks with biggest fish overall paying $1,000 from Pafford EMS. There will be three places paid per hour, which includes first place at $100, second place at $75 and third place at $50.
Millwood is a beautiful lake to fish in and the surrounding area is an outdoor paradise. According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, "Millwood is located in the southwest corner of Arkansas on the Little River, 16 miles upstream from its confluence with the Red River. Nine recreation areas offer modern camping facilities. Millwood Lake provides some of the best fishing in the country, while the surrounding land is prime habitat for nature enthusiasts of all types."
Entry fee for the tournament is just $50 per person. Weigh-in time is 2 :30 p.m. For more information contact Mickey Stout at 870-703-9771 or 870-777-9772.
