Community Involvement

Betts Community Gold Cards

Betts Fishing Center is proud of the Tampa Bay community, and supports various local charities and fund raising efforts.  Since purchasing the bisiness in 1992, we have been active in protecting the rights of recreational anglers, promoting and supporting local charities, and encouraging good stewardship of our resources and fisheries.   We educate anglers on proper catch and release techniques, and encourage conservation.

Betts has developed a program to help LOCAL organizations with fund raisers.  Our Community Promo Gift Card Program, provides gift cards for specific events.  If you have an upcoming event and would like information on our Promo Card program, please email, for more information.
