Kids Fishing Clinics

Saltwater Marine Fishing Regulations Florida Saltwater Fishing

Kids’ Fishing Clinics

Kids’ Fishing Clinics are one-day educational events conducted by the Outreach and Education (O&E) subsection of the FWC’s Division of Marine Fisheries Management. These free public events encourage responsible marine resource stewardship by teaching children ethical angling practices and the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems. Children are also instructed on fundamental saltwater fishing skills and provided with a positive fishing experience. Clinic participants can be between the ages of 5 and 15, must be accompanied by a guardian, and are required to go through the following skill stations:

  • Ethical Angler: teaches the importance of conserving Florida’s marine fisheries,
  • Knot Tying: demonstrates how to properly attach a hook to fishing line,
  • Tackle: provides a hands-on display of different tackle types,
  • Touch Tank: shows how to interact with Florida’s marine habitats, and
  • Casting: allows children to practice safe casting.

Fishing equipment and bait are provided for children to use during the clinic, but participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing tackle. A limited number of rods and reels will be given away to participants upon completion of the clinic. If conditions allow, participants will also have the opportunity to fish from shore and put their new skills to the test.
