CONCORD, N.H. — Registration opens April 10 for an exciting day of deep sea fishing off New Hampshire’s coast with the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program. The trip takes place on Sunday, June 4, 2017. The cost for the day is $75, which includes instruction, bait and rod rental. Participants should bring their own lunch.
Please note: There is a new registration process this year. Participants must register online at www.nhbow.com. Registration is first-come, first-served and space is limited. All participants must be age 18 or older.
On this popular 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 (www.yellowbirdfishing.com) out of Hampton, N.H. This rugged vessel will take the group about 25 miles offshore to drop lines for groundfish such as cod, haddock and pollock. During the day, you’ll learn how to use saltwater fishing rods and reels, how to bait the hook and successfully land a fish. You’ll also learn how to identify saltwater fish. Helpful mates will filet your catch on the way back to the dock. No experience is necessary, and a saltwater fishing license is not required.
N.H. Becoming an Outdoors-Woman programs are co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (www.wildnh.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (www.nhwf.org).
Funded through the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Program, Fish and Game’s Let’s Go Fishing Program (www.fishnh.com/fishing/lets-go-fishing.html) 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.
