Father and Son Fishing at Lake

Join us on July 30th at Turtlehead Lake where we will be teaching kids the basics of the fishing and that fishing can be FUN! Fishing is a great outdoor sport for the whole family. This sport is a great avenue to teach things like patience, determination and a sense of accomplishment when they succeed. Our goal with this event is to help educate children and their parents on the proper ways to successfully fish and also instill the ethics and morals that go hand in hand.

Plenty of avid fisherman will be on hand to teach kids and parents how to properly use fishing gear, tie hooks, bait hooks, safely remove fish and educate them on the rules and regulations.

There will be food trucks, grills and catering for a small fee. Event will also include face-painting, balloon artists and a bounce house compliments of Ivy League Kids.

Register: $10 suggest donation

All event proceeds will be donated to Kids Fit Foundation and St. Baldrick’s for childhood cancer research. No donation is too small!

This event is to be a fun, relaxing and educational day for the kids and also a great opportunity for parents and kids to meet fellow fishing enthusiasts for future fishing outings.

Kevin Miller, event host and avid fisherman, is excited to bring his knowledge and passion in the sport to the local community. He has been told from parents that children lose interest when fishing because they aren’t catching anything or they don’t know the proper techniques. Kevin is excited to extend his resources and training with the parents and kids to show them how to properly fish and all the aspects surrounding it.

If you have fishing poles, please bring them. We will provide basic tackle of bait, hooks, bobs and weights. Additional parking available with party bus for transport.
