FISH­ING WITH VET­ER­ANS

Marlin - - FEEDBACK - Adam LaRosa Via email

I just wanted to drop a note in re­sponse to Sam White’s ar­ti­cle “Giv­ing Back: Bill­fish­ing With Vet­er­ans” [Novem­ber 2016] — very well done on all parts for pro­mot­ing this to the fish­ing com­mu­nity! Over the past 10 years or so, the boats in the Canyon Run­ner fleet have taken out about 200 vet­er­ans to go off­shore fish­ing both to the North­east Canyons and gi­ant tuna fish­ing off North Carolina. In the past sev­eral years, we also par­tic­i­pated in a lo­cal shark tour­na­ment, which raises money for what I believe is a great cause: Op­er­a­tion Re­stored War­rior. We have also raised about $50,000 for the or­ga­ni­za­tion at our Canyon Run­ner Off­shore Sem­i­nar Se­ries. There is noth­ing bet­ter than giv­ing back to these great Amer­i­can he­roes.

Shown in the at­tached pic­ture (right) are two Navy SEALs, two Ma­rine snipers, one of the most high­est-dec­o­rated Cana­dian snipers and the crew of Canyon Run­ner.
