Firefighters, This is YOUR Call to Arms!

Since the Fire Charity Fishing Tournament event was created by a firefighter – we have a SPECIAL TROPHY set aside for the top fishing team of firefighters. That trophy will sit in the winning firehouse for an entire year with bragging rights.

Come show your community what we’re all about – having fun and supporting a great cause, competing with firefighters all over the state of Florida. Call Founder Erik Nicholson at 941.962.5873 with any questions. We want TEAMS!

A Letter From the Founder, Captain Erik Nicholson

Fellow Brothers and Sisters!
A Call to Arms, Friday June 9th through Sunday, June 11th, 2017 at Bradenton Yacht Club in Palmetto, FL
Show the community what we’re all about – SPONSOR, FISH, PLAY, and HELP us spread the word to make a difference in the life of young burn victims.
The money we raised from the fishing tournament will benefit the Burn Camp for Children in Florida. This special camp is a place where burned children can gather together for a few days and forget that they look different; a place where they can develop new friendships and realize that others have had similar experiences.
There’s a mandatory Captain’s Meeting on Friday, all anglers fish on Saturday and the weigh-in and awards party is on Sunday. Come bring your family over Father’s Day weekend. Call Erik about special considerations for Firefighting teams. Come enjoy the eating, drinking, face painting, participating in an art auction, and viewing our outdoor vendors.

We will have live entertainment, food and drinks, a climbing wall, bouncy house, face painting, raffles and more. Please give us a call if your department would like to participate in any way. Otherwise we look forward to seeing individual firefighters fishing in the tournament with their family and friends.

Be sure to put your fishing skills to the test!
ANY team, made up of firefighters and or EMS personnel will compete for the Firefighter’s perpetual Champions Helmet Trophy. This is a trophy that rotates to the winning firehouse each year. Bring home the trophy to YOUR station!
ALL sponsorship/fishing forms are available at by clicking here for the Fire Charity Fishing Website Please don’t hesitate to call with any questions. Hope to see you there!
