The 2nd Annual Fishing for Freedom Thousand Islands Bass Tournament is set for Friday, September 11 – Saturday, September 12, 2015. This is a fundraiser to help support Carthage Area Hospital and the USO Fort Drum and is scheduled to be held at Bonnie Castle Resort in Alexandria Bay, NY. This tournament will honor Active Military by celebrating freedom and outdoor recreation in Northern New York.
With the collaboration of Army Bass Anglers and Bass Champs, we have the opportunity to bring some of the best anglers in the country to the majestic thousand islands. Although an amateur event, this is a professional grade tournament that will draw crowds from all over the state and beyond and is open to both military and civilian anglers.
Fishing for Freedom Thousand Islands will kick off Friday evening with a BBQ banquet for all registered anglers, families, and Active Duty Military. A meet and greet with Army Bass Anglers and Bass Champs will take place at this time as well. Anglers and families can enjoy fellowship and check out the competition. The tournament will begin bright and early the following morning. The grounds of Bonnie Castle will provide onlookers with incredible scenery as well as an opportunity to visit local vendors and participate in other activities.
