Every month there are boat captains that volunteer their Saturday morning to the youth anglers, therefore a thank you is extended to the following: Terry Seabolt, Billy Ellerbee, Jim Newell, Tim Carter, Mr. Davis and Paul Hare.
Applications are being accepted for the 2020 season throughout the year. If you have a youth angler between the ages of 11-18 who loves fishing or wants to learn a new sport, please reach out to Danielle at 561-436-8491 or email@example.com. The club is also in dire need of boat captains for one Saturday a month (from 6:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. and with gas reimbursed) to enjoy a great day of fishing with some of our local youth. Please reach out.
