This season I had the opportunity to fish with Jacob Schick from 22 Kill. 22 Kill is a veteran’s advocacy organization designed to raise awareness about the difficulties that face veterans. The name was derived from the fact that on average, a staggering 22 veterans commit suicide per day.

Jacob Schick was deployed in Iraq as a Marine when the vehicle he was driving struck a tank mine. He was blown 30 feet into the air. Injured, he waited 42 minutes until a Blackhawk helicopter picked him up. He had collapsed lungs, multiple fractures in his left leg and arm, ligament and bone loss, and burns and holes in his left hand and arm. It took him over 15 months to recover mentally and physically. Schick had 46 operations, 23 blood transfusions and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Jacob spends his time motivating others through 22 Kill. What an honor to fish him with him!
Jacob and I fished out of South Seas Island Resort with Captain Ozzie Fischer. Fishing with Capt. Ozzie out of South Seas is one of my favorite destinations because great fishing is just a stones throw away from the resort.
