Tournament angler thrown from boat

    An angler competing in the “Castin’ for Cash” bass tournament was sent to La Verendrye Hospital here this morning after being ejected from his boat while fishing on Lake Despair.    The fisherman, Trevor Zimack of Thunder Bay, reportedly was thrown from his boat when it caught a wave the wrong way.    “When I got back in [from the lake], he had already gone to town,” said tournament organizer Bill Godin, who confirmed Zimack “was hurt a little bit.”    Zimack’s fishing partner was unharmed, Godin added.    The two-day tournament goes today and tomorrow, with the weigh-ins getting underway at 4 p.m. both days at Lake Despair Lodge.
