Ahoy there, BOW fans!  Registration opens May 6 for an exciting day of deep sea fishing off New Hampshire’s coast with the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program. The trip takes place on Sunday, June 9, 2013. The cost for the day is $75, which includes instruction, bait and rod rental.  We’ll provide water and snacks, but do bring your own lunch.

A print-and-mail registration form is available at http://www.nhbow.com, or you can request a form by emailing aquatic-ed@wildlife.nh.gov or calling 603-271-3212. Applications are accepted by mail only (no walk-ins). Registration is first-come, first-served and space is limited, so sign up soon if you are interested. All participants must be age 18 or older.

Participants will 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., which will take us about 25 miles offshore to drop lines for groundfish such as cod, haddock and pollock.

During this day of deep sea fishing fun, you’ll learn how to use saltwater fishing rods and reels, how to bait the hook and techniques for successfully landing ocean 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 for this trip.
