Fishing School Program

We are very excited to be able to offer this unique and specialized experience to children on Long Island.

The Take It Easy Fishing School provides fishing and boating experiences for boys and girls in 5th - 10th grade. The school operates out of the Freeport Boatmen’s Association.

 

Capt. Brian offers a week-long summer program that educates children about saltwater fishing. The program is designed for the child who enjoys fishing and being on the water for extended periods of time.

The purpose of the Fishing School is for kids to HAVE FUN! Capt. Brian wants to expose children to experiences which will broaden their understanding in three key areas: fishing, boating, and environmental conservation.

First Mate Training Program

This program is specifically designed to train students to become mates on fishing boats.

 

This program is similar to a CIT (counselors-in-training) program, except the students are specially trained so they are equipped and skilled to secure employment on a fishing boat.

 

The program is open to boys and girls in 9th through 11th grade. Children will develop new skills in order to help obtain the fishing related job they desire.

 

CITs benefit from this program by gaining valuable work experience, practicing leadership techniques, and learning to work as a team. No transportation is provided.
