In effort to generate more interest in fishing in children ages 6 to 16, the Montauk Chamber of Commerce is continuing their "Take a Kid Fishing" program this summer. These learning expeditions will take place on various dates starting August 12.

The Harbor's Captains and Mates are ready to give children who have never been on a fishing boat before the opportunity to get out on the water and learn how to bait, hook, and clean their catch. Fishing equipment, bait, and personal flotation vests will be provided.

The program is free for children, but it must be their first time ever on a fishing boat. The fee is $10 for adults.

You can sign up Monday afternoons at the Montauk Chamber of Commerce (742 Montauk Highway) or by emailing mcoc@montaukchamber.com. Pat Shea is coordinating the sign ups.
