Tight Lines for Troops Annual Veteran Fishing Tournament Holding Raffle

Next month, veterans will go fishing in Manistee for the 10th Annual Tight Lines for Troops.

Tight Lines for Troops gives veterans a chance to participate in a free fishing tournament.

Right now they’re holding a raffle to help make the event possible.

The money raised from the raffle tickets will help feed the roughly 700 people expected at this year’s event.

The raffle winner will ride off with a new Polaris Ranger.

More than 2,000 veterans have taken part in the fishing event since it began.

“It’s such an emotional impact on the veterans. It gives them such a great opportunity to share their stories and then spend time with fellow veterans. You know, buying a ticket is the easiest. There possibly is you actually have a chance of winning something pretty spectacular for your small investment,” Tight Lines for Troops board member Craig Kent said.
