On this daylong sea-faring expedition, you’ll join Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) and Let’s Go Fishing Program instructors for a chartered day of fishing aboard the Yellowbird (http://www.yellowbirdfishing.com) out of Hampton Beach, N.H.  This rugged vessel will take the group about 25 miles offshore to drop lines for groundfish such as cod, haddock and pollock.     During the day, you’ll learn how to use saltwater fishing rods and reels; how to bait the hook and land a fish.  You’ll also learn how to identify saltwater fish. Helpful mates will filet your catch on the way back to dock.  No experience is necessary.  No saltwater fishing license is required.

N.H. Becoming an Outdoors-Woman programs are co-sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (http://www.wildnh.com) and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation (http://www.nhwf.org).

Funded through the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Program, Fish and Game’s Let’s Go Fishing Program (http://www.fishnh.com/Fishing/lets_go_fishing.htm) teaches the skills and ethics of fishing and introduces thousands of people each year to an outdoor activity that fosters good stewardship of New Hampshire’s aquatic resources.
