NAPLES, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – Music, golf and fish – lots and lots of fish. That’s how Steve and Jamie Lloyd, founders of Naples Take a Soldier Fishing, ended their 11th annual three-day event that brought nearly 150 soldiers together in Florida.

“It was great,” Jamie Lloyd said in an interview with Fox News.

And because of Hurricane Irma last year, this time around, the event was bigger than ever.

“We have to cancel because of Hurricane Irma last year, so we had a surplus of funds,” she said. “So we spent it on another night for the soldiers.”

The pair said around 145 to 150 soldiers participated in the weekend fishing event — about ten more than they usually have.
