Fish For A Cure 2020 is Going Virtual

Now more than ever, your support of F4AC will continue to make a splash in cancer care for thousands of patients and their families throughout our region. With respect to the impact that COVID-19 is having on our community, the Fish for a Cure Tournament, Paul C. Dettor Captain’s Challenge, and Shore Party supporting the Cancer Survivorship Program at Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute is going virtual this year.

Although we won’t be gathering in person this year on Saturday, November 7th, to fish and fundraise for this life changing cause, you can count on our collective effort to “kick cancer’s bass” and celebrate the spirit of competition among friends for which F4AC is so well known.

Register your boat today!

We are making a few changes to our events to keep the health and safety of our friends of F4AC as our top priority.

  •  The Virtual F4AC Tournament will be Catch & Release only this year and supported by Coastal Conservation Association Maryland. Find out more about how you will use the iAngler app to log your catch and win amazing prizes for biggest fish!
  • Celebrate with your crew after a great day on the Bay with our F4AC Portable Party Pack! (Valued at $600) Rather than a big party, we will provide each boat with a spirited and delicious box of catered cuisine so that you and your anglers and friends can enjoy with a fun party your way. As the night goes on, the Paul C. Dettor Captain’s Challenge and F4AC Tournament Winner announcements will be live-streamed.
  • We are partnering with your favorite local businesses to hook you up with even more amazing swag in our Captain’s Buckets donated by AllTackle. Swing by the Annapolis Maritime Museum on Wednesday, November 4th to pick up your buckets. Then tune into our Captain’s Meeting live stream that night to hear more about the F4AC Tournament rules.

Join us on Wednesday, August 19th from 7:00pm-8:00pm for an interactive Zoom chat with our F4AC crew to learn more. Login information below:
