A free fishing class taught by Biscayne National Park experts will be offered on Wednesday July 20 at 6 PM in both English and Spanish at Suniland Park, 8398 SW 128th Street in Pinecrest.
The three-and-one-half hour class will be repeated on October 26 and December 14.
“By helping anglers in the community we are also improving the health of the fisheries and protecting the amazing resources of the park,” said Captain Gil Muratori. “Each depends on the other.”
A veteran fishing captain, a fishery scientist and a park biologist teach the free courses. They help people to identify the fish they catch, understand fishing regulations and get the most out of their fishing experience. Course benefits include:
Free fish identification guides and other materials.
Advice on tackle, equipment maintenance and fishing techniques including “catch and release.”
Understanding how improved fishing depends upon protecting resources.
The classes are free but reservations are required. Call 305-230-1144 x036 or sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve space.
