There will be two bass competitions at this years event.
1. Boat / Pro Anglers – Veterans will be matched with a Pro Angler and fish together during the tournament in the Pro Angler’s fishing boat. At the end of the competition, there will be a weigh-in ceremony with a leader board for the most fish with the greatest weight.
2. Kayak Fishing – Camp Liberty is arranging for 10 kayaks to be available for veterans to bass fish independently. The kayak division will have its own competition and at the end of the competition, veterans will share the overall measurements of the fish they caught and released. (Honor system)
