Hundreds of fishermen are hitting the waters of Lake Ontario Tuesday to help raise money for the Red Cross. It’s the annual Casting for Caring fishing tournament.

The event has raised as much as $50,000 for the Red Cross in past years. That money goes to things like disaster relief and running blood drives.

There are about 30 companies participating with cash prizes for the boat that catches the biggest fish and the boat that catches the most fish.

The Casting for Caring tournament has been held for the past 20 years.
