Join Bass Pro Shops every Saturday during September for a unique opportunity to take a fishing class at Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park. Participants are asked to meet at the boat ramp at 8 a.m. where they will demonstrate the proper techniques for using a cast net to catch bait. Afterwards, they will walk over to a nearby pavilion where there is a small strip of beach from which to fish. The park will provide all bait and tackle and all the participant will need is a Florida Saltwater fishing license.
Space is limited to 10 people and there will be a sign up sheet in the ranger station at Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park. The spaces for the class are on a first come first serve basis. Please remember to bring sunscreen, bug spray, and any drinks or snacks you will require. Dress appropriately you will get wet.
Park admission fees do apply. Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park is located at 4281 S.R. 20, Niceville, FL. For more information, call (850) 833-9144.
