On this daylong sea-faring expedition, you’ll join Becoming an
Outdoors-Woman (BOW) and Let’s Go Fishing Program instructors for a
chartered day of fishing aboard the Yellowbird
(http://www.yellowbirdfishing.com) out of Hampton Beach, N.H. This
rugged vessel will take the group about 25 miles offshore to drop
lines for groundfish such as cod, haddock and pollock. No
experience necessary. During the day, you’ll learn about saltwater
fishing techniques, equipment, bait, fish identification, as well
as picking up some tips on how to fillet and cook ocean fish.
N.H. Becoming an Outdoors-Woman programs are co-sponsored by the
New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (http://www.wildnh.com) and
the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (http://www.nhwf.org).
Funded through the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration
Program, Fish and Game’s Let’s Go Fishing Program
(http://www.fishnh.com/Fishing/lets_go_fishing.htm) teaches the
skills and ethics of fishing and introduces thousands of people
each year to an outdoor activity that fosters good stewardship of
New Hampshire’s aquatic resources.
