Florida Fish Camp

Fishing is a perfect complement to hunting. Fish are readily available in most parts of the US and are a great resource when it comes to filling your freezer.

This Florida-based fishing camp happening from May 13th through the 16th is the perfect introduction to shore, inland saltwater, and freshwater pond fishing. During the three-day camp, you'll learn everything from how to cast, which baits and tackle to use, and how to read the water to learn more about where fish may be located. You'll also be introduced to proper fishing ethics and history. After camp, you'll walk away with a newfound respect for our underwater neighbors as well as sound conservation ethics to keep in mind as you continue your angling journey.

Information

Hunt to Eat meets Florida fishing, sunny skies, good eats, and spirited conservation discussions during this all-inclusive, mentored fishing experience. Inshore fishing in the famous Guana River Preserve, surf casting in the Atlantic Ocean along 9 miles of pristine, undeveloped beach in the Guana Tolomato Mantanzas Reserve, and even some freshwater pursuits for panfish and bass are all on the schedule. This event will cover a lot of water and provide opportunities to land a variety of salt and freshwater fish species.

Early morning and late evening beach surf fishing is a charming experience. Come prepared to ocean wade fish, cast a Zebco 33 for bluegill, and land a flounder or a slot Red Drum. Provided the miles of pristine beaches and coastal dunes within Guana Preserve, the experience is further heightened with captivating views while surfcasting into the shallow surf. Local anglers will mentor you on bait, tactics, the basics of Florida angling, and more.

Hunt to Eat Fish Camp is all-inclusive. Anything you need, including lodging, meals, bait, and tackle will be provided for you. However, mentees are more than welcome to bring along their own personal rod and reel, gear, their favorite snacks, and any other items they would like for their trip.

Hunt to Eat is an inclusive brand and community. We encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA2+ folks to apply to be a mentee for this fish camp.
