Annual fishing tournament celebrates more veterans than ever
LAKE ERLING, Ark. (KTAL/KMSS) – Wet weather doesn’t put a damper on an annual event celebrating those who’ve served our country.
More than 30 teams of veterans and boat captains set out on Lake Erling Saturday for the annual AGRED Foundation Wounded Patriots Fishing Tournament.
“It wasn’t as bad as I thought it was gonna be,” said Kelly Craig, a patriot participating in the event who retired from the U.S. Army. “They had some moments there where, you know, it was really tough fishing. I mean in the rain, it always is, but we had a good time.”
