Fall Surf Fishing Class Moves to Saturdays

The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher has moved its popular Surf Fishing workshops to Saturday mornings through the rest of the fall season.

Fall is my favorite season for surf fishing, said instructor Rick Wilkinson. The fish are almost sure to be biting, and the weather is usually great.

The workshops are an ideal way for beginners to learn the art and practice of saltwater fishing, and a great refresher for experienced anglers. Each session begins with a one-hour classroom discussion, then moves to the nearby beach for two fun-filled hours of fishing.

Itís a catch-and-release program, said Wilkinson, so donít bring your coolers. All fishing equipment and bait are provided by the aquarium, he added. The workshops are for ages 10 and up. Advance registration is required, and the cost is $8 for each participant.

The aquarium is located fifteen miles south of Wilmington on US 421, just beyond the town of Kure Beach, and less than a mile north of the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry terminal. Administered by the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the stateís three Aquariums are designed to promote a greater awareness, understanding, and appreciation of North Carolinaís diverse aquatic environments.
