FREE FISHING TRIP for any active duty military or veteran of any kind

I am offering a one day free fishing trip for any active duty military or veteran and their family or friends.

The rules are simple, must be an active duty soldier or veteran of any kind, and must be able to fish on the weekend (I have a day job).

My name is Kelley Allen and I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and love fishing. I want to give back to my fellow veterans by offering them a chance to experience something that I truly love to do! FISH!

My co-captain's name is Angelo Grosso and he is also a veteran as he served in the United States Navy. Him and I have been fishing together for over 2 years.

My boat is a 30 foot center console with twin 300 HP engines capable of going offshore all the way to the Bahamas!

We are very successful (most times) when we go out fishing and would love to share the experience with the military community.

This trip is completely free with no strings attached. This is a small thanks to all of those who serve and have served.

Please email me [email protected] or call me 561-451-5488 to set up a trip. All trips leave out of the Alsdorf Ramp on 14th street in Pompano Beach.

    I just wanted to say to all that I met Kelly through this forum A little over a year ago. He invited my son and I to go dolphin fishing one day and let me tell you what a blast that was! We ended up catching some good fish that day but better yet, he is a cool person along with Angelo, who also fished with us that day. Ive hung out with them outside of fishing and they are fun to hang with !! As you can see in the picture, he has a beautiful boat that's rigged to fish. Kelly is an all-around cool person who also has a great family!! Take him up on that offer and I promise you will not be disappointed!!

    Good job Kelly!!

    Awesome offer, Rhino! I'm an Army vet (82nd Airborne 86-90) and would love to take you up on the offer. However, I also own a boat and would not feel right taking an opportunity from a Brother who is boat-less. Maybe we could find a Saturday (football on Sundays!) that you don't have a vet lined up and we can split the expense 3 ways. I have a 21 SeaCraft- great riding boat but a little small to comfortably fish 3 adults.
    Catch 'em up!

    Awesome gesture sir! I am trying to contact my nephew who lives in Fort Lauderdale. He served in Iraq. he could certainly use this. his younger brother has been missing for over a month now. i hope i can hook him up with you. Way to go and thank you for protecting the USA!

    Rhino, I'm a former Navy Aircrewman and would love to fish with you. I just moved to WPB from Destin and know little or nothing about fishing down here. Also, I used to work on charter boats so I have no problem cleaning the boat or cleaning fish. As for pitching in for gas, bait or tackle I'd be more than happy to pay my way.

    Great gesture Man. Very cool!

    I'll echo what's been said already - really great gesture man. Good luck to you and the lucky people who'll go with you.

    Way to give back and thanks for your service. You may want to look up an organization called Freedom Fighters Outdoors which is out of Lighthouse Point, which does what you are doing.
