Fishing, fishing, fishing and even more fishing at the week long summer camp. Young anglers (grades 7-12) fish everyday with an expert saltwater fishing educational team. Spend a week with marine educators and learn a lifetime of saltwater fishing techniques. Participants explore fish biology and behavior and how weather, wind, moon and tides affect fishing. During the week, anglers will learn how to throw a net to catch bait, how to tag and release fish and how to target speckled trout, redfish and flounder. Participants will fish a variety of saltwater habitats aboard vessels and at the islands.
