Is it possible that some of you guys have room on your boats to take memebers of the US military out for a free trip this season? Many of us fish by ourselves and could use the company. Some of you guys have boats so big that taking an extra guy or two wouldnt be a big deal.
The smaller boats could take active soldiers , the bigger boats might have the room to take some injured guys. Just an idea if it takes off maybe we can stick it at the top and Ill start making some calls and see if we can get a link on military websites.
Ill start... I have a 21 footer and fish every weekday outside and behind Absecon inlet. I can take two guys any weekday.
I have a whole fleet of kayaks and will take up to four guys at night to bass fish under bridges. Everything will be free and Ill bring everything.

Take A Vet Fishing-yes

There is a website http://www.takeavetfishing.org/ that I belong to and we take vets out each year.

What your asking for is great!

Its a way to show our VETS, our sincere appreciation, for their dedication and sacrifices to this great Country we all call home.

THANKS! & come fishing with us.

TAKE A VET FISHING...I DO!

Any VET can just email me with your contact information at [email protected] (make sure you give me all your info) I'll call you back and get you on a trip.

We fish inshore at Night eeling for big Stripers, daytime for fluke/seabass, sharking and offshore trips trolling and chunking for tunas/swords/marlin/wahoo/dolphin/tilefish.

There is no cost, just bring your food and drinks and let us put a fight on the end of your line and a smile on your face.

See our weekly reports, videos and much more at www.tunafishingmontaukstyle.wetpaint.com .

Gotta love America

I only run a 17 center but very comfortable and sea worthy. Can only take one at a time but glad to donate 5 weekdays on the Susky flats this spring. Fantastic idea. Atta boy. Same here, if they can get to Havre de Grace MD. I'll cover every thing and have everything.
