The Vets Fishing with Vets Tournament was created by an experienced and motivated group of volunteers wanting to give back and honor ALL United States Veterans; young and old. This tournament is an excellent opportunity to show our support to all our troops. The Spirit Of Aransas Pass Proudly Announces ‘Vets Fishing With Vets’ – A Star-Spangled Celebration Of Food, Fun, Fishing And Fund-Raising Honoring U.S. Veteran.

Aransas Pass, TX, January 20, 2015 – The Spirit Of Aransas Pass, a Texas nonprofit corporation, proudly announces the first annual Vets Fishing With Vets (VFWV) 2-day Veteran’s Celebration and fishing tournament featuring live music, dancing, great food, door prizes and a don’t-want-to-miss silent auction. This annual event will benefit the STVHCS Fisher House, providing a “home away from home” completely free of charge for families of veterans receiving care through the South Texas Veterans Health Care System in San Antonio.

“We created this Veteran’s Celebration as an opportunity for us to honor, and give back to, our Veterans”, said event co-chairman Jan Moore. “We want everyone to join the fun -- whether fishing or watching the weigh-in and having fun at the party -- and help us honor and support these courageous men and women who deserve our thanks, and support, for serving our country.”

Join us Friday evening, May 20, for the Vets Fishing With Vets (VFWV) kick-off reception, and tournament registration, featuring live entertainment and great food at Redfish Bay Boathouse in Aransas Pass.
