Event Details

Everyone must wear a mask at the weigh-in and dinner!
The Veteran Summer Slam is an event that a few local captains have put together to say thank you to any and all veterans. This is a 100% free 8-hour off-shore fishing trip. We currently have more than 20 boats all occupied with veterans. We are currently looking for any captains that would like to donate their time and boat to take more veterans out, as our veteran list is ever-growing!

Galveston Yacht Basin has offered to waive all launch fees for any captain donating their boat for the event. Galveston Yacht Basin has a full bar and restaurant. We are currently working on getting a live band for the event along with many other family-friendly activities.

We would like to have a few “side pots” as well. We are currently looking at 3 different fish to do side pots on, see below. Donations of any kind, for these pot winners would be greatly appreciated to be able to achieve all 3 places in each event.
