Up North Journal attends the Inaugural Tight Lines for Troops Event in
Manistee Michigan. Tight Lines for Troops organized 38 Great Lakes
Charter boats donating their time and equipment to take almost 160
Michigan Veterans on a fishing event, at no cost. Preference was given
to wounded veterans and even a Medal of Honor recipient attended the
event. An awards banquet and ceremony was held in the evening with
prizes going to the largest catch and the best single service team catch
was awarded the Governors' Cup accompanied by a letter from Michigan's
governor Granholm. A resounding success, plans are already being
discussed to increase the size of the event for next year in an attempt
to provide this experience to as many veterans as possible
