The crew of the Booby Trap just put on their fourth annual 2014 “Get Tight Sucka” Texas Swordfish Seminar. With the help of many sponsors, local businesses and lots of volunteers, the Booby Trap Crew raises money to help the Everyday Heroes organization buy electric wheel chairs and provide transportation to our veterans in need. They cut through the hassle of paperwork and help the people who have served and sacrificed for us all.
The seminar is hugely popular and a great time where aspiring swordfish anglers come from near and far to learn the techniques used by the masters of this fishery. This year the proceeds reached the 400,000-dollar mark, and will go a long way for helping our Veterans.
