Heroes Served: 2
Details: WHHC sent 2 Heroes to Lake Erie for 2 days of walleye fishing with Bushwacker Charters hosted by T.B. Wilderness Lodge. The first morning the Heroes woke up bright and early eager to get out on the water only to find out that mother nature was not going to let that happen. Overnight the winds had picked up causing the water to become very choppy. Upon waking up the next morning the winds calmed down enough to get out on the water. Usually this time of year the fish are on the smaller side, but this was not the case for our Heroes. All but a few fish were large including a bonus steelhead that was caught. The Heroes had caught their limits within a few hours and our volunteers fileted all the fish for the Heroes to take home. A huge thank you to Bushwackers Carters and to T.B. Wilderness Lodge for making this weekend one to remember!

Heroes Served: 6
Details: Captain Donnie Bayne once again hooked it up for our deserving Heroes! Two days on the water - and everyone had caught their limits in under an hour on both day. Everyone was well fed thanks to the American Legion Post 228, well taken care of by Captain Bayne, and took home plenty of fish and new fun stories to share. Thanks again to Captain Bayne for his unwavering dedication to always making our trips a big success!
Our Wounded Heroes take home memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!
