WOW! What a great event. Last Saturday June 9, 2012 I participated in the first 'Our Warriors on the Water' event. Twenty 24 local Pros took 24 veterans from the Korean War to current conflicts for a day of fishing on Roosevelt Lake as our way of thanking them for their service and comittment to keeping America free.
It was a great day on the water with the veterans competing againt each other for top honors from each war campaign. We fished from 5:00AM until 10:00AM then assembled and headed for Roosevelt Resort for lunch and awards.
Shake Rattle & Troll Radio Show,1100AM host Don McDowell organized the event and pulled some great sponsors, Bill Luke Jeep, Dodge, RAM, Sportsman's Wearhouse, Rim Country Rods, Payson Round Up, Fast-Tech Designs, just to name a few, together to help make this a day to remember.
What a great day and a great way to thank our Warriors, past and present, for their service to our country!
A special thanks to the folks at Legend Boats for providing some special tactical gear for my Warrior and I for the event! Be sure to check out the 2012 Alpha 211 Tactical boat @
I know I'll be looking forward to the 2nd annual event next year!

I am excited about being invited as one of the local Pros to take out a veteran on June 9, 2012 for a 'Warriors on the Water' event. We have twenty-four local Pro's who have agreed to take part and veterans from as far back ad the Korean War who will be joining us in celebrating their service to our country. Hosted by Don McDowell of Radio Show 'Shake Rattle and Troll' and Bill Luke Dodge, this has all the right stuff to be a successful event. We'll take the veterans out for approximately a five hour mini tournament on Roosevelt Lake, then bring them in for a weigh-in, prizes and a good lunch at the Roosevelt Resort in Roosevelt, AZ. It should be a great time for all. I will post the results after the event.
