About The Event

For those not familiar with the event, it happens at Calaveras Lake. Boat owners volunteer their boat and take the registered veterans and their guests for a morning of fishing and fun. After all that fun, our veterans and their guest will have lunch provided by the Lone Star Grillers. Veterans are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing approperiate to weather conditions. May bring personal fishing gear but is not necessary, boat captains will have loaners. Veterans do not need to know how to fish. First timers are definitely welcomed. Fishing is for everyone! Fin Addict Angler Foundation promotes angler education, fostering the knowledge and skills of fishing while reinforcing the importance of stewardship and outdoor ethics.

Fishing is a huge outlet to escape reality for a bit and to de-stress from stressful returns that many veterans experience in their transition to civilian life. Focusing and finding the rhythm of fishing helps to bring peace of mind to many who are struggling with their life in the present. 

To make this event happen, we need volunteer boat owners with their boats, volunteers, and monetary/product donations. To donate please contact Rosemary at To volunteer as a Boat Captain/Boat Owner please contact Oscar 210-643-3396.  To register must be a veteran and complete the registration form to get on the list. Guest limit to 1. Guest does not have to be a veteran. If your guest is a veteran, please indicate correctly, in case if extra shirts are available. 

Calavera’s Park opens at 6am and check-in is from 7am to 8am. Boats depart at 8am and fish till 12 noon. Lunch will be provided from 12:30pm to 1:30pm. 

We welcome all the help we can get on this one. Thank you
