Take a Vet Fishing, NFP is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that takes US Military Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) fishing as a "Day of Giving Back".

On May 15th, 2016 we will be taking (up to) 150 US Military Veterans on 75 guide boats fishing on the Fox Chain of Lakes in Fox Lake, IL. We start by putting Veterans up in hotels the evening before the event. We fish from 7:00am - 11:00am, We present the flags & sing the National Anthem at 12:00 noon. We feed the Vets, their families, our guide boat captains and all volunteers from 12:30 - 1:30. At 1:30 we start our Veteran recognition party & we give away close to $10,000 worth of gifts and prizes to our Veterans.

EVERYTHING IS 100% FREE TO THE VETS, THEIR FAMILIES, GUIDE BOAT CAPTAINS AND VOLUNTEERS! Registration is on a first come, first serve basis through our website at and is open to ALL branches of service, (Active duty or Veterans).

TAVF has seven board members and NONE of them take a salary. This allows the MAXIMUM of each dollar donated to go directly back to our Veterans.

The organization is local to Bartlett, IL., but we now have events in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota. We plan to expand into Florida and California in 2017.
