For the second year in a row the North Georgia Crappie Anglers (NGCA) and Veterans 3 Guns teamed up on Saturday, Sept. 28 to host the Fishing with Military Heroes fishing tournament on Lake Lanier. The event was open to veterans of all conflicts and services and the NGCA provided everything needed to fish from boats to rods and reels. After last year’s successful debut, event organizer Josh Thornton saw the opportunity to grow the event and reached out to a variety of community groups in an effort to allow as many people as possible to participate in this year’s tournament.
