Fall fishing sessions bring an array of fish that are commonly found in the area. According to surf fishing instructor Rick Wilkinson, “Fall is the best season for fishing because the larger fish come in closer to the shore.” One popular fish is the red drum, which is North Carolina’s state fish. Other frequently caught fish are whiting, black drum, flounder, and bluefish.
The workshops, which are fun for both children and adults, are ages ten and up and the fee is $12 per participant. Aquarium admission is not included. Pre-registration is required and can be made by calling 910-458-7468. Workshops are offered Saturday, October 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31 at 9:00 am.
