Veterans Stickmarsh Bass Challenge Highlights

On Saturday September 6, 2014 the city of Palm Bay joined with the Melbourne Regional Chamber of east Central Florida, Bass Pro Shops and many other sponsors for the 1st Annual Veteran’s Stick Marsh Bass Challenge. Mayor William Capote challenged all local elected leaders to compete and help support the veterans. Nearly 30 veterans were paired with a boat captain who donated his/her time, and an elected leader to see who could catch the biggest bass. This video provides a brief summary of the day’s activities.
