Armed Forces Combat Fishing Tournament

Craig Medred has a nice write up of the annual event where generous Seward charter captains take enlisted service personnel stationed in Alaska out for some halibut fishing.

"With the tournament now the largest military appreciation fishing event in the country, more than a few businesses throughout the broader Prince William Sound area have been joining in, and there is goodly bit of financial support from the state’s largest city.

"An April auction in Anchorage raised almost $50,000 for the event.

"The money helps fund free and low-cost programs the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska provides military personnel. Not many of those programs can top a free-of-charge chance to go chase the biggest of big Alaska fish in an event where everyone goes home a winner."
