Fish on For Freedom Veterans Tournament
Canceled for 2021 due to Covid-19 health concerns
In 2019, veterans participated in a free salmon fishing trip on 32 charter boats with captains to guide the trip. The captains line up their boats for a 6am tournament-style shotgun start outside the pierheads, then head off to fish until 12pm, when a welcome home procession led by the United States Coast Guard and Ludington Fire Patrol boat enter the harbor. After the boats are docked, participants are honored at a weigh-in event and luncheon for all guests and volunteers of the morning’s activities. After the fish have been weighed, guests fed, and fishing stories exchanged, awards are given for the day’s fishing activities.
The evening before the event, veterans are treated to a Meet & Greet with their captain and crew for the day of the tournament. All Participants must be present to register for Thursday event.
