30 Boats!

As of today we now have 30 boats who have volunteered for the event!  You can see most of them on the Our Fleet page.

We need to cap off the 2015 event at 30 boats, but  If you want to volunteer but didn’t get your boat into us, we are still taking names for back up and other functions.  So please get your info into us ASAP!

Major Sponsor Announced!

Operation Reel Heroes Is very proud to announce Our Major Sponsor. For 2015 Raymarine has teamed up with FLIR to sponsor the awards dinner on Saturday night! They will be putting on a Old Fashion Clam Bake on the beach overlooking Sandy Neck. We think this will be a great way to cap off the event for our veterans, their guests and our boat crews. Special Thanks to Bill Jones of Raymarine for making this happen.

June Event Update

A message from Capt. Paul Lecesse:

Just an update on the event in June.
The outpouring of support has been overwhelming to say the least. Our website has received over 5,000 hits this past week alone. Facebook has reached more then 2000 people nationwide and received over 150 likes the first five days it was up.

Sponsors have been coming out of the woodwork! Some very exciting announcements will be made this week about this event which has taken on a life of it’s own.

When I contacted Arthur to volunteer to assist him with his vision of taking a few vets out for a day on the water, I don’t think either of us had any Idea this would grow so quickly and become so important to so many people. Now with the help of all of you, we intend to put on a great time for our heroes and their families.

If you or someone you know would like to volunteer to help with the event, sponsor the event, or know someone who would like to attend, please contact us.

Our Mission

Operation Reel Heroes is a fishing event that we have created to help fulfill some of our heroes dream of going out saltwater fishing and spending time on the water. A fleet of boats located all around cape cod and beyond will be taking out our veterans for a day on the water fishing beautiful Nantucket sound.

On June 6th we will be taking our service men out of Bass River in Yarmouth Ma to catch some fish and spend a day on the water.  At the end of the day we will celebrate with a cookout overlooking Sandy Neck.

If you would like to help in any way please let us know. You can email us directly from this website using the contact form or email
