Adult and Women's Saltwater Fishing Clinics

Adult and Women's Saltwater Fishing Clinics

Calendar: Find an Adult or Women's Saltwater Fishing Clinic today. These clinics are not being offered at this time, however we are currently recruiting partners who can help us provide this programming throughout Florida. Contact if you are interested in partnering. 

These one-day, shore-based events are designed to introduce women and men to saltwater fishing and educate participants on how to be responsible, ethical stewards of Florida's marine resources. Programs are free to the public 18 years or older, and require a saltwater fishing license to attend. 

A variety of skill stations and lecture topics are offered and include Inshore Fishing, Cast Netting, Knot Tying, Conservation and more. The day ends with an opportunity for all participants to put their newly learned skills to work as they fish from shore. Participants may borrow fishing gear from the FWC but are encouraged to bring their own equipment.

The FWC's involvement is funded in part by money from the Sport Fish Restoration Program. This national program collects money from excise taxes on fishing equipment, import duties on fishing equipment and boats, and taxes on motorboat and small-engine fuels.
