We would like to thank you again for helping us this year in getting our military out on the water fishing with our Warriors on the Water program. The trip to the Coronados last week was a huge success (again!) as we caught tons of fish for the guys and gals in perfect ocean conditions. It was mostly bass and a few yellowtails but they bit all day long. By noon, they would not take a handoff as they had all figured it out and were catching the fish on HookUp Baits on their own. We caught so many fish we were delayed putting the boat in the slip as we had to sit outside the marina to finish cleaning the fish and we had been cleaning all the way home.

We had a special guest on the boat, Col Willard Buhl, USMC who is in charge of the wounded warrior program for the Marines. His list of accomplishments is as long as your leg but he seemed to be the proudest of his commanding role in the clearing of Fallujah in Iraq in 2003-2005. He is an absolute joy to be around and we were proud to have him on the boat. He kept thanking us for this program telling us how important it is for guys to have something like going fishing is to their healing. I told him we will continue to do this with support from all of our sponsors such as you!

Everyone went home with a smile on their face, a huge bag of fillets, sweatshirts, discount cards for HookUp Baits, and a head full of joy. Thanks again for making it happen!
