The 2019 Aspirus Ontonagon Hospital Lake Trout Classic is presented by Greig's Taxidermy.  Now in its fifteenth year the first LTC was held in 2005 with 40 teams participating, and it has been growing in popularity ever since.  The tourney attracts numbers of fishing enthusiasts to Ontonagon for top prize money. The addition of a powder puff category also helped keep more entrants in the county overnight and assisted the local economy.  About 30 percent of the entrants come from out of the area. The barbecue contest and dinner has been an expansion of the classic and was held for the second time this year.

All proceeds from the event are donated to the Ontonagon County Cancer Association. Donations are also made to the families of sick children in the area.
