Naples Take A Soldier Fishing
Naples Take A Soldier Fishing is a non-profit organization that supports the brave men and women serving in the United States Armed Services. Each September, for over 10 years, a local group of 70 passionate fishing captains and anglers host over 150 active duty combat soldiers and wounded combat veterans to fish both the inshore and offshore waters of beautiful Naples, Fl.
Through donations from local businesses, personal donations, and our various fundraising events throughout the year, we raise the necessary funds to put on the largest charity fishing tournament in Southwest Florida. Our board is 100% volunteer, comprised of local individuals who care deeply about our country and the men and women who put themselves in harms way to defend the freedoms we cherish here in America. Ask us about volunteer service opportunities throughout the year or during the annual tournament.
All monies raised, or products donated, directly fund the annual tournament weekend events, which include luxury lodging, gourmet meals, entertainment, transportation, and awards for our troops. All the captains who participate in our event happily donate their time, expertise, fuel, and equipment. Our tournament is by invitation only. This allows us to maintain the integrity and original purpose of our organization. Our aim is to show our troops how much we appreciate everything they do for our country, and give them an opportunity to relax and decompress from their stressful lives.
