Fishing for Freedom Tournament Back on


After a last minute decision, the Fishing for Freedom Tournament is back on.

The annual event hosts hundreds of veterans and soldiers from around the country right on Lake Belton.

It was initially canceled because of the government shutdown, which caused the closing of boat ramps on the lake.

On Tuesday, the board of directors decided to cancel the tournament because of the logistics for travel and hotels for an event that size.

"Our hands were forced to cancel it so I really wanted to make sure we did everything we could to make the event possible happen," said Cliff Brown, Fishing for Freedom Director. "So, I sent an email out asking all my boaters. And I got probably within a half hour to 45 min I had over 100 emails back saying I'm in."

Now that the event is back on, it will be held on Saturday.
