A heap of ashes is all that's left of Jon Fenner's fish house after vandals hit Chisago Lake. This wasn't just any fish house. It was one specially made for Fenner equipped with handicapped gear for the 26-year-old who's suffered multiple strokes.
Fenner was born with a carotid artery and at age 22 he suddenly had three strokes, paralyzing the left side of his body. After long rehabilitation he started fishing again, outdoor sports are a passion of his.
Just days ago his family bought him the specially equipped fish house, but last Wednesday vandals burned it down. When Fenner saw his fish house in rubbles, his father says Jon cried.
The Chisago County Sheriffs department is investigating and the Fenners are offering a $500 reward for anyone with information about what happened to their fish house.
They are going to start a fund. Just received a post on LSF informing us of a fund that will be started to help cover the costs of a new house. I will keep you all posted when i hear more in the next few days
FM is up to $2,500 as of this morning. I think that the $5.95 fee was a mistake made when Rick set up the donation page. I believe it was taken off within a short time of being noticed. Its all free of fees now from what I understand.
This guy is going to have more fishing stuff then he knows what to do with.

If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
