Head to West Marine’s Portland location for a special kid’s fishing event this weekend.
West Marine specializes in boating accessories, parts, apparel and fishing supplies. Hooked on Fishing is an in-store event for kids to learn and improve on fishing basics.
Kids get to learn how to tie a hook to a line, casting, types of bait, fish identification and rules of fishing.
Here are the different stations:
- Good angler station
- Tackle and knot tying station
- Bait station
- Casting station
Kids who complete all stations will win a free fishing rod and reel combo. This is available while supplies last.
