About this Adventure

A passion for fishing begins with understanding fish and how to bait a hook. What better way to instill interest than introducing kids to fish and their food sources which are easily identifiable throughout the shallows of the Gulf! In this intro, your kids will get to see, touch and learn about different kinds of bait both living and non; learn how to use a rod and practice baiting their own hook; and (if we’re lucky) get to experience reeling in the big one right at the water’s edge.
