On July 15th, two of our fellow fisherman encountered some huge waves from a wake boat. They were traveling at speeds approaching 75 miles per hour and the boat was sent airborne. As the boat and anglers crashed back into the water, the passenger Greg Davis was critically injured. Thanks to the quick response and heroic actions of other fisherman in the area, he and his brother Jason were safely pulled from the water. Greg was airlifted to the Hospital. He suffered several spinal fractures, a ruptured spleen, collapsed lung and internal bleeding. He spent several days in the hospital and had surgery to repair his injuries. He is back home and his prognosis for recovery is bright. HALF of the battle has been fought.

The heroic action needs to continue. Greg and his family face staggering medical bills and loss of income. His recovery is in process but he still needs more time to recover. Unable to work and earn, he faces an uncertain financial future. The reality of a tragedy is that it doesn't magically stop when you leave the hospital. Imagine facing the world after you get home, the stress of unpaid bills, the feeling of helplessness you would surely feel. This is when heroic action is turned into compassion. When the best in all of us shines through. A few men, all of them anglers, have stepped up and said I want to help this family find a way through this dark time in their lives.
