“Part of the Old Salt mission statement is to support family interaction and camaraderie through fishing. We want all children to have the opportunity and experience of catching a fish”. Say’s Tom Verdensky, Old Salt President. “We live in a beautiful state surrounded by water, fishing is a hobby that any kid can do. As the saying goes “catch a fish and your hooked for life” Fishing is a life long passion that keeps people outdoors and active, and that’s important for everyone at any age”, said Verdensky.

So, it is that simple, register a kid you love online, grab a rod and reel and bring them out to fish! And when the fishing is done plan on BBQ for dinner at The Baddest BBQ & Bone Fishing Slam Festival. There will be live music by Soul Circus Cowboys, Pig Races, a kid’s zone, art and marine vendors plus 15 awesome BBQ and food vendors to wet your whistle with.
