Kids Fishing

Kids’ Fishing Clinics are one-day educational events established by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. One of the main goals for the Kids’ Fishing Clinics is to create responsible marine resource stewards by teaching children the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems. In addition, we hope to teach fundamental saltwater fishing skills and to provide kids with a positive fishing experience. At the clinics, children go through five skill stations: Casting, Knot Tying, Fishing Tackle, Good Angler, and Touch Tank. After approximately one hour of instruction, the children will receive a free rod and reel (compliments of local sponsors), and at most clinics, will have the opportunity to fish.

 

More than 31,000 children and 18,000 parents have participated in Kids’ Fishing Clinics. And it’s all possible thanks to over 5,000 volunteers who come out to assist in educating young anglers about fishing techniques, marine habitats, ethical angling, and conservation.
