The Town of Brookhaven is co-sponsoring this saltwater clinic. As summer winds down, come out and join us for some snapper fishing and crabbing. Loaner rods and free fishing bait will be provided. This clinic will focus on both snapper fishing & crab fishing techniques, fish biology, and stewardship. Crabbing participants are encouraged to bring an uncooked package of chicken (drumsticks/legs work well), as event supply may be limited.
Important items to bring: string, crab net, crab trap, and a bucket. Anglers may certainly bring their own saltwater fishing gear. There will be limited crab traps and nets to borrow if needed.
