Fishing For Futures was founded with the goal to use fishing to bring exposure to our communities’ Non-Profits. But more importantly, we wanted to introduce our local disadvantaged kids to the joy of fishing.
Our founder Rick Miller owner of TRM, himself a boat captain has a deep passion for kids and fishing, taking his kids fishing from an early age. A long-time resident of St Lucie and Martin County Rick found that many disadvantaged kids who lived within miles from the ocean had never been fishing let alone on a boat.
This realization coupled with Rick’s love for kids moved him to found this event in benefit of the Boys and Girls Club of St. Lucie County. Our tournament has successfully benefited our communities, kids, by introducing them to fishing while simultaneously raising money for the benefit of local Non-Profits. For our 4th annual, we have brought on Elev8Hope as a new Non-Profit to extend our reach to Martin County.
