Who we are
How did Reel*Time USA come about?
I would like to share with you how this idea came about: A few years ago, I was bass fishing with my good friend Bart in Jupiter, Florida. I noticed a few kids fishing next to me and having a blast catching bass and taking “selfie” photos with their fish before they would carefully release them back in the water. What took place after that caught my attention; they were sharing their Bass photos on social media. The excitement on their faces and the conversations they had amongst each other was absolutely infectious. They couldn’t wait to catch another fish so they could post and share their friends near and far. From this observation, I was inspired to organize a friendly competition with friends. The inaugural event wound up having 76 anglers in 9 states. Today, that idea has turned into a “National Fishing Challenge”. There are hundreds of participants from all over the USA that have enjoyed a day with their family and friends, making memories and teaching fundamental values like strong work ethic and good sportsmanship.
It is our mission to provide a nationwide community for anglers of all ages while raising funds and awareness for charitable organizations and community members in need. This is more than a challenge. This is a place where you can connect with like-minded people all over the USA #ReelTimeUSA!
