The summer fishing program is dedicated to providing kids and their families with a fun and educational fishing experience. Kids Let’s Go Fishing! encourages ethical angling for future generations by helping children develop an appreciation of Florida’s unique marine ecosystems.

Prior to fishing, you and the kids will learn fishing and boating safety, fishing rules & regulations, use of tackle, and proper fish-handling and release techniques. Aboard the charter boat, you’ll fish on inshore reefs with light tackle (donated by Fish Florida!) and barbless circle hooks. So kids can catch these fish another day, all fish will be released.

Tackle, bait and fishing licenses are included. Please bring water, sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and snacks.

This is a partnership of the Fishing and Conservation Trust, Miami-Dade Cooperative Extension Sea Grant Program and South Florida fishing fleets. Learn more at www.kidsletsgofishing.com or call the Miami-Dade Cooperative Extension Sea Grant program at (305) 421-4017.
