Marquette, MI  –  September 7, 2018  –  This Sunday the South Shore Fishing Association and people from all over the Upper Peninsula will be honoring our veterans during the SSFA Veterans Appreciation Fishing Day.

Community members have volunteered their boats and time to take 150 veterans out on the Big Lake to do some fishing! This annual event gives veterans a chance to enjoy some time on Lake Superior and cast their rods. The vets will be out fishing all morning long before returning to Mattson Lower Harbor for the 1pm Boat Parade.

The public is encouraged to come out and cheer on the veterans as they do their loop around the harbor. Patriot music will be playing as the vets float by and hold up their catch of the day! Community members can line up along the harbor for the parade to show their appreciation to those who served and check out the successful kicks.
