“I always like to say that a bad day fishing is better than a good day at the office,” Mayor Capote said. 

“The best part about this fishing adventure is that we are helping our local veterans and for me, that is priceless.” 

A post tournament dinner and awards ceremony will be held at Palm Bay’s Bass Pro Shops Stick Marsh Outpost.

“This annual event gives our veterans a day of fishing and relaxation plus a competitive challenge on the famous bass fishing stick marsh,” said Justin Anderson, Veterans Resource Committee liaison for the Melbourne Regional Chamber.

“Veterans and municipal leaders will be paired with a boat captain for a day competing for the largest bass.”

Mayor Capote’s challenge is meant to lure fellow municipal mayors to participate in the event.

“The challenge is for the mayors to participate in this to see who can catch the biggest bass,” Mayor Capote said. 

“Besides, a ‘reel’ mayor can ‘tackle’ anything right?  But seriously, it’s all about supporting our veterans and sharing a memorable day with them and I would love to see all our mayors participate.” 

The veteran participants will be selected through the Veterans Resource Committee.
