Hands Helping Anglers


Thank you to everyone who registered, anglers and boat captains will be matched up shortly and you will be contacted the week before the event!

2023 EVENT DATE: September 30, 2023

We are excited that we get to continue this program this year! 

Boat Captain SignUp AVAILABLE now!   anglers: click here to signup

 Hands Helping Anglers is a program to take people with disabilities out to experience boat fishing. Food, beverages, and bait will be provided for an awesome day on the water.

We are currently seeking boat owners willing to take a person with a disability fishing for the day. Even if you only have room for 1 person, you can provide a very special day on the water for an angler with a disability. 

This will be our 33rd Hands Helping Anglers event, in partnership with Rotary Clubs and Shield's Marina.

As with previous years, most boats will leave out of Saint Marks, FL, but some will leave from other areas (depending on the boat captain).

Space is limited. Anglers are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis.

  • If you are interested in being a boat captain, please contact John McBride at 850-570-3467 or [email protected]
  • We are taking registrations for anglers (people who want to go out on a boat fishing). If interested, please register here: Hands Helping Anglers - September 30, 2023
  • Anglers will be matched with boats and transportation issues addressed
