Take a soldier fishing day will be held on April 26, 2014 and is an event for the soldiers of Fort Drum and is held on Oneida Lake in NY. Members of the NY BASS Federation take soldiers fishing for the day. Afterward, the soldiers are prepared meals by professional competition barbecue teams. Teams from New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Canada will be participating. The teams are donating their time and equipment to make the dinner a success, but we are raising funds to purchase the food necessary to feed our men and women in uniform as well as other expenses associated with this event. We will be feeding approximately 300 people during this event.

Please spread the word and donate if you can, our soldiers deserve it.

We have something similar here at Joint Base McGuire, Dix, Lakehurst; we take the children of deployed troops for a day of fishing. They get a Zebco rod and reel, basic tackle box, bait, a free lunch cooked on the grills, door prizes, and awards for the biggest catch in the age categories. They get to keep all of the items after the fishing derby is over.
