About the event

The main purpose of this tournament will be to provide Ambulatory and Non Ambulatory veterans without boats a chance to spend a day on the water fishing in a real tournament. Of course, we all expect to have a good time as well. Veterans whether seasoned fishermen/women or complete amateurs will be paired up with Professional Anglers and shown the tips and tricks of being a productive fisherman. Fishing gear and tackle will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own. Fishing Licence requirements will be waived for this event for all participating Veterans. This will be a no cost event and all Veterans are Welcomed.

This Fishing Tournament will be held on August 25th at Lake Bartlett and the Pairing Dinner will be held August 17th at VFW Post 3513. It is highly recommended that if you commit to fish, you commit to the pairing dinner as you will be teamed up with your Pro Angler at that time.

The tournament will consist of a 5am start and 10am finish. Each team will catch 5 fish (13in Min), Limit of 2 from your Pro Angler and 3 from the veteran. Tournament rules are still being worked out and will be posted in the near future. The top five teams will receive an additional paid fishing excursion that will be based out of San Diego Ca. with more details to come.
