Students in Sanibel Sea School's Fishing Fridays course will learn practical fishing skills. 

Sanibel Sea School will offer a new learning opportunity for adults this spring called Fishing Fridays. The four-week course, led by lifelong fisherman and marine biologist Dr. Bruce Neill, is a chance to gain practical, hands-on fishing experience. Each week, students will visit a different location and focus on different target species. It is up to participants to decide whether to fish with a spinning or fly rod. 

“This course is designed as a place to share ideas and knowledge, and to look at how we can become better fishermen and women from both a practical and scientific perspective,” said Dr. Neill. “Things like weather, fish migration patterns, and water temperature and quality can all affect fishing success. We’ll go over these topics and also have a great time learning from one another in a more casual way.” Fishing Fridays will be held on four consecutive Fridays beginning March 3rd, from 1-4 PM, and is open to students of any level. Participants must bring their own gear. Weather permitting, the final session will be spent on a boat.   

Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. To learn more and register, visit sanibelseaschool.org/sanibel-adult-programs or call (239) 472-8585.
