Calling all anglers! Memorial Day weekend 2017 will mark the inaugural ‘Fishing for AHERO’ Fishing Rodeo, May 26-28. This event will include a competitive fishing rodeo, food, music and lots of prizes for participants and sponsors including the grand prize of passes for two to fish aboard the Breathe Easy, alongside veterans. It all happens during the September 2017 AHERO “Warrior Hook-Up” event on Pensacola Beach.

It’s all for a worthy cause! Each year, AHERO brings wounded veterans to our shores for the “Warrior Hook-up”, where local and regional boat owners host a day of fishing enjoyment. Your participation in the rodeo will help AHERO in its efforts to fight against the tragic loss of our military and veterans to suicide. 100 percent of the proceeds benefit AHERO [501.c.3].
