    The event was cancelled this year, So Capt. Nick offered up the group of Veterans that have been aboard for 4 years running now a free trip for the day. Smiles and fish for all, Job well done Boys. :bowdown: 117309593_2826427974130467_286080737503418369_n.jpg 117273176_2826427820797149_3297950845206374097_n.jpg 117292518_2826427874130477_4983362705863152467_n.jpg

    Am I correct that even though the official group fish for veterans is called off, the unofficial fish for veterans, will take veterans out.

    That is outstanding!!!

    It would be great to see others follow suit, reach out to Veterans and offer up there time and services for a days fishing for the Vets. :cool:

    I'm not a veteran but, I know how my cousins and BIL's felt for many years and honestly still do.

    Thank you and the others, involved for doing these things for others.

    I would take the vet that always fished with me, that was my Dad world war 2. He is no long with us. We won the event in 2012.

    So I’m a veteran, and I think this is AWESOME!! Great job! That being said I have a chance to fish the bay Saturday and Sunday, have my own boat, just don’t make it over here enough to know where to go or what to use?? Any suggestions? Just looking for a couple walleye, but never complain about anything bending the rod!!!

    There's a member on here, but isn't on often who has an organization who does events and things for veterans all the time. His name on Facebook is "Glen Venner"...
