Fishing With A Soldier is a 501(c)(3) Organization. Richard Ballard (Army Ret.) started Fishing With A Soldier in 2013. Since then we have hosted tournaments on Chickamauga Lake, TN, Cherokee Lake, TN and our first ever tournament on Allatoona Lake, Ga in 2023 to give back to those that sacrificed so much for our freedom! Thank you Veterans and Volunteer Boaters! Also, thank you to our many sponsors that can be found on our home page!
