Hi everyone! Just a quick note to let everyone know that we will be holding the 3rd annual 2014 Sodus Bay Healing Waters Salmon Slam on Saturday August 2nd!

Last year's event was bigger than ever and I hope this year will be even better. Many of our sponsors are geared up and ready to go! I've also heard from Project Healing Waters and the Veterans and Service men and women have been talking about the tournament all winter and are ready to get back out on the water!

For those who haven't been involved or are not familiar with the event, this single day tournament is utilized as a way to help wounded and disabled veterans and active duty military by bringing them out on the water and sharing our passion for fishing with them. Here are a couple of quick videos from the past events:






The event is coordinated with Project Healing Waters which is a non-profit organization dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans through fishing education and outings.

The tournament rules will be the same as last year. I'll post them shortly. There is no fee to enter the tournament other than bringing one or more of our veterans/servicemen out on your team. There will be three divisions, salmon, steelhead, and brown trout. The single largest veteran/serviceman caught fish wins each divsion and there will be separate prizes for veterans and captains.

The tournament is held out of Arneys Marina in Sodus Point, NY. You do not need to be docked there, but you will need to pick up your veterans/servicemen there. If you'd like to dock there for the day/weekend call in advance, as slips run out quickly!

There will be a free barbecue after the tournament as well!

I'd like to start with opening up registration to 15 boats and may extend it if there is as much interest as there was last year.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email, IM, or phone.

Those looking to donate items for the event or volunteer your time to make this event more amazing than last year, please contact me!

Hi Nick and Theresa,

 

Jake and I will be back this year for whatever needs to be done.  We can help shore side, or if a captain needs a 1st and 2nd mate, we can accommodate them.

 

Call or pm me with your needs.

Big fish Friday is a go for Friday August 1st.

Rules are the same as last year, $50 per boat with 50% going to the winner and 50% to the Salmon Slam for wounded and disabled Veterans and Servicemen. You can begin fishing anytime after 12:01 AM and from any port, but must weigh in at Arneys Marina by 4PM.

You do not need to participate in the Salmon Slam to fish BFF.

There will be a dinner afterwards again this year for anyone who would like to come meet some fellow anglers and Vets. I'm still working on the location.

Payment must be received by Thursday July 31st. You can send me a check by mail (message me for my address), drop it off at my boat at Arneys Marina, or paypal me at [email protected]

If you have any questions, please let me know!
