About

Fish on For Freedom is a charity, not for profit event, that will be held in our home waters of Ludington as a token of thanks from our community to the men and women that have sacrificed so much making this nation what it is today. 

Although a big part of the event is the activity of going out fishing on the waters of Lake Michigan, we are also designing this event to be about the camaraderie of our guests spending time together and the support our community can show towards the military veterans.

Event

2023's Fish on for Freedom will take place on the morning of June 16th with a tournament style start. At noon, we'll conclude fishing and all the participating boats will gather outside the Ludington pier heads to proceed back into the harbor together. This will give community members a wonderful chance to line the Ludington harbor and welcome back the participants and thank them for their sacrifices for our country. We will have a luncheon and awards at the American Legion following return to shore. 

Sponsorship

Fish on for Freedom is a not-for-profit event. Our captains, crew, and luncheon help all volunteer their time and their boats to take these heroes fishing. We welcome private or corporate sponsorship of this event. Please contact us if you would like to speak more about contributing this great event.
