The Pier Aquarium presents this “xtreme” fishing camp for children ages 10 and older. On the first day, campers will learn the "do's and don'ts" of fishing safety, along with the differences between in-shore and offshore fishing and the varieties of tackle. Lunch provided, followed by a half-day fishing trip that ends at 6pm. Campers will learn how to clean and fillet their catch to take it home.
The second day begins at 6am with an orientation about deep-sea fishing tackle and an all-day deep-sea fishing trip; breakfast, lunch and a snack will be provided. Campers will fillet and clean the bounty, and all fish will be prepared for a fish-fry banquet with awards aboard the Friendly Fisherman boat. Parents are invited to attend.
Day 3 starts at 8am with instruction on beach, jetty and bridge fishing, plus familiarization with tackle. Campers will fish from the beach, a jetty and a bridge. Then it's time for a fish-filleting lesson and barbecue at Beach Park.
On Day 4, get set for another all-day, deep-sea fishing trip starting at 6am. An awards banquet aboard the Friendly Fisherman follows; parents invited.
Limited to 30 campers.
