fishing at Bayshore Waterfront Park

Get hooked on fishing while competing in our second annual saltwater fishing derby. Fun for the whole family, this derby is open to beginners as well as experienced anglers. No experience in saltwater fishing? Let us teach you how to rig and cast your fishing pole. Then join Park System Naturalists as they conduct free seining demonstrations and help them identify what they catch. Finally, try landing the longest fish. Participants must supply their own fishing poles, tackle and bait for the tournament. Prizes are awarded for the longest fish caught in three different age categories, see derby rules for more information. Only fishing from the beach is allowed.

Pre-registration is suggested; however, walk-ins are welcome.

The cost is $8 per person; $4 each additional person; cash or check only on day of.
