"American Bass Anglers (ABA) today announced plans to honor the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), the famous Screaming Eagles, and their families with a special day of events in October. Many of the division’s soldiers have served in Iraq and this will be a small way to say “welcome home” to the returning soldiers and to show our gratitude and support as a nation to both them and their families.

The day’s events will take place at Paris Landing, TN. and beautiful Kentucky Lake and will feature fishing, food, and entertainment for the soldiers and their families. Soldiers will be paired with experienced bass anglers for an exciting day of trying to catch some of the lunker bass Kentucky Lake is noted for."

Anyone else fishing this that wants to split a room?

That sounds like a great deal, that the ABA is honoring, the 101st out of Ft. Campbell.

FROM THE PAA: On October 13 and 14, the American Bass Anglers (ABA) tournament organization is promoting a charity tournament on Kentucky Lake to salute the 101st Airborne and all of the soldiers and families in the unit. PAA members are asked to get involved, time permitting.

The tournament will be based out of Paris Landing in Paris, TN on Kentucky Lake. Morse Sheehan of American Bass Anglers is asking all pros who have the time to volunteer to take a soldier fishing for the day. “We’d like as many pros as possible to come and take the soldiers out,” said Sheehan. “These are the people who defend our way of life and to give them a great day out on the water means so much.”

This tournament isn’t without its perks. It’s a no-entry-fee event with a ton of national exposure from various television outlets, the Sean Hannity radio show, Fox News and local television affiliates.

In addition to fishing, there will be entertainment for the entire family such as a boat simulator from Triton Boats, a kids activity area and simulator from Fort Campbell, KY where the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles are based.

“We also have plenty of celebrities lined up for the event,” said Sheehan. “Tennessee Senator Bill Frist, many generals from Washington, Jerry Reed, Tanya Tucker, Little Jimmy Dickens, Bobby Bare, Porter Waggoner and Bryan White are all scheduled to appear. We’ll also have a USO-type show. The great thing is that this is all free for all who attend. In fact, all of the celebrities attending are doing it for no fee.”

Don't forget this is rapidly approaching and that I am still looking for a roommate for the event.

Come take a soldier fishing as a way of saying thanks for these folks standing between us and the bad guys. It is the least you can do..

Just returned. More on this great event when I get unpacked and my pictures on the web.

Well, there won't be any pictures. Someone stole by camera out of my truck at a gas station in TN.
That stinks, someone stealing your camera !!!!!
I now have pictures for another fisherman and Gary Yamamoto on my site.
