Sgt. 1st Class Willie Bartley Jr., U.S. Army Forces Command G1, and bass angler Stanton McDuffie, proudly display their "keepers" from the 6th Annual Warriors on the Water Military Appreciation Bass Fishing Tournament, April 29, 2011, at Jordan Lake, N.C. McDuffie, a member of the N.C. State University Bass Fishing Team was one of 150 volunteer professional and recreational bass anglers from across the United States who took an equal number of joint service members out for a day of competitive fishing. In strict accordance with the tournament's "catch and release" protocol, the fish were safely returned to the lake, helping to ensure the healthy survival of the species. Note: The N.C. creel limit for bass is five, all of which must measure a minimum of 14 inches, from nose to tail.
