Youth and their families can learn the basics of fishing

Join us for the inauguration of a Take Me Fishing™ First Catch Center.   Bring your family and spend a day learning about saltwater fishing. Equipment and bait will be provided but you may bring your own if you desire.  Space is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, go to Fishing's Future web page, https://www.fishingsfuture.org/content/bahia-grande-family-fish-camp

Participants will rotate through education stations to learn fishing knots, rules and regulations., fish ID and habitat, ethics, proper fish handling techniques, water and boat safety, fishing equipment, environmental stewardship, tackle box basics and some of the local tips, tricks and techniques used to catch fish. After lunch (hotdogs and chips) and depending on fishing conditions, participants will fish for 30 minutes or more. Afterwards, please plan to stay for  the presentation of certificates and door prizes for youth who are registered.

Dress for the weather, and bring a water bottle, bug spray, a hat, sunglasses, chairs and wear comfortable clothes and shoes that will probably get wet and dirty.

The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation (RBFF) has teamed up with Fishing's Future and has selected the U.S. Fish & Wildlife’s Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge as an ideal location to host First Catch Center events to kick off the 2018 season.
