The Junior’s Program is dedicated to teaching the youth with classroom activities throughout the winter months and hands-on fishing trips in the summer. The emphasis is on learning the basics of rod building, fly tying, plug making, knot tying, bait rigs, and reading the water. Our goal is creating well rounded fishermen and women for the future of our sport. Jr. Program meetings are held on the last Saturday of the scheduled months. Membership in Plum Island Surfcasters is required to participate in this fun and informative program.
All members (even our adult members who would like guidance) are encouraged to attend any of the Jr. Program meetings, events, and activities to learn a few new techniques, new fishing spots, or just have fun. Only registered club members and their family can attend our Junior’s Program Events. We regret that we cannot accommodate others.
April 23, 2016: 8:00 am: Freshwater Fishing at Lake Gardner in Amesbury, MA
This was a fun and great way to get the fishing season started. We fished for sunfish, yellow perch, pickerel and largemouth bass. Seven different species of fish were caught, including sunfish, crappie, yellow perch, white perch and largemouth bass.
Detailed information on upcoming events is shared via email with all club members. If you have a child who wants to learn to fish, consider joining the club to make the Junior’s Program available to you.
May 14, 2016: Carp fishing: details TBA.
June, July, September and October generally feature surfcasting trips, one to Hampton Beach, NH and the others to Plum Island. We generally do not have a trip in August.
