Port Aransas Boatmen, Inc.

Port Aransas Boatmen Incorporated is a non-profit organization, made up of charter boat owners and operators dedicated to providing services to the community of Port Aransas, Texas, in the form of scholarships and youth related activities.  Your participation in PAB sponsored events such as the annual Deep Sea Roundup makes these services possible.

About the Boatmen

In 1932, twenty-five charter boat and commercial fishermen formed what was known as the Boatmen's Association.  The primary mission of the group was to protect their fishing waters, sponsor the Texas Tarpon Rodeo, and support community activities. Over the years, the old Boatmen's Association has undergone changes in both name and mission.  Of prime importance in the mission of the PAB is the funding of scholarships for the youth of Port Aransas.
