Junior Angler Fishing Program

The National Park Service and the American Littoral Society are partnering this summer to teach young people surf fishing on Sandy Hook. As part of the program, we will cover the basics of casting, knot tying, lure/bait selection, and “reading” a beach.

All skill levels are welcome. Rods, reels, and tackle will be provided. Children 11 and up are welcome with a supervising adult. Parents must have a copy of their NJ Saltwater Registry License. Please bring your lunch and snacks.

Notes to parents:

  • Only register children who will be attending. Supervising adults do not need to register.
  • Anglers who are 16 years of age and older will need to sign up for the free NJ Saltwater Registry and must have the certificate on them during the program.

Contact Littoral Society Fish Tagging Program Director Emily McGuckin with any questions: Emily.McGuckin@littoralsociety.org.​
