Time on the Water was created with one goal in mind: to thank our Military Veterans and Active Servicemen for their sacrifice by providing an all-expenses paid fishing trip.

Time on the Water takes Veterans and Active Military Servicemen on fishing trips to Lake of the Woods, Sioux Narrows, Ontario for five days. We also schedule several local day fishing trips in the Midwest.

Wondering what you can expect from your trip? We will arrange your transportation, lodging, meals, fishing equipment, and even guide you to the spots where we know fish are biting! Chris Hansen, Co-Founder of Time on the Water, is an expert fisherman and will be joining you on your trip to make sure you have a great time and catch some fish. We work hard year round to raise money to cover the costs of these trips, so that we can offer this great experience at absolutely no cost.

There are no hardship requirements that our Veterans or Active Servicemen must meet in order to participate in one of our excellent fishing trips. We try to serve as many veterans as we can. You can share your story, or just talk fishing, either way you are welcome.

Our mission is simple. We want to give back just a little to our Military Veterans and Active Servicemen who have given so much.

Wondering how you can help? We are always looking for volunteers to help us raise money at our fundraising events, find Veterans who might like to participate, and even help us out on a fishing trip. Contact us here if you’d like to donate your time and skills to this cause.

If you'd like to help but don’t have the time to spare, we hope you would consider giving a donation, or even sponsoring a trip. Click here to learn more about donations and sponsorships.

If you are a veteran, or know someone who is and would enjoy an all-expenses paid fishing trip, please contact us today!
