Fisherman Gear Up for Veteran’s Event

The 1st Annual Tight Lines for Troops fishing tournament kicks off tomorrow in Manistee. Expected at the event are over 160 veterans, occupying 37 charter boats. A small ceremony starts just before 7 tomorrow morning, followed promptly by the tournament. After the tournament, veterans can enjoy an All-American barbecue and car show at the National Guard Armory. The event is totally free, and aims to show appreciation to our veterans.
