A Day on the Water
for a Great Cause.


APRIL 22, 2023

The Annual SAF Fishing Tournament is a fundraising event where fishers compete to raise money for boater and hunter safety, promoting the wearing of PFDs (personal floatation devices) and safety switches when driving a boat, and Search and Rescue for loved ones.

The fishing tournament is held in and around the inter-coastal waterways and bays surrounding Port Aransas and Corpus Christi, Texas.

The 13th Annual SAF Fishing Tournament was a huge success. A record-breaking $16,750 was raised at the event, with all proceeds going directly to the local organization.

Thank you again to our 2022 sponsors. The 13th Annual SAF Fishing Tournament registration is open now.
