Armed Services Combat Fishing Tournament

Founded in 2006, the Combat Fishing Tournament was established to give thanks to the brave young men and women of the United States Armed Services who have served our nation with honor and courage in both the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of war. In just a few short years the ASCFT has garnered huge success and notoriety and is now considered the largest military appreciation fishing tournament in the United States.

The 10th Annual Armed Services Combat Fishing Tournament will be held in Seward, Alaska on May 26, 2016. Thanks to the generous support of the Seward deep-sea charter fleet, many local charter vessels were donated to the event, allowing approximately 200 deserving service members to participate.
