Heroes on the Water fishing

This past Saturday, Sharkbite Bucktails/Brinkman’s Bait and Tackle co sponsored a fishing event with Heroes on the Water at Falls Twp. Lake. South Jersey chapter Director George Daly and I were able to put this event together along with support from Mission Barbeque of Philadelphia who provided an outstanding lunch for the participants and Woolford bait and tackle sales who donated bait for the anglers. The Hal Brown corporation also donated fishing gear. Participants attending were from various branches of the service. Some.of the local Bass club participants also were present. Thanks for joining us Bob and Joe! Lots of fish observed jumping and a few bass were caught. Just great to see some smiles and give back to our veterans who have served for us.
