"Fishing with Buddies "
Our first Near-Shore Charter boat fishing event held in November 2019 was very successful. It was a lot of fun for everybody. 20 Individuals and their Fishing Buddies participated and everybody caught fish. We look forward to planning another charter boat event in 2020. We selectively chose participants to participate in the charter boat event for a variety of reasons. If you would like for your son or daughter to be one of the participants in 2020, please contact us to let us know.
We also held our first freshwater Fishing with Buddies event in November 2019 at the Harrison County Sheriff's Farm pond. We had around 50 participants and volunteers. We plan to grow this program more in 2020. Look for more information and registration forms to be posted in late August and September.
Unfortunately, the pier/harbor fishing event in the spring of 2020 had to be canceled due to the Corvid-19 pandemic.
These events will be open to participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other special needs. A family member and/or Volunteer Buddy will help the individual with special needs fish. There may be some specific requirements depending upon the type of event.
