Kayak Fishing Symposium Scheduled at Go Fish Education Center

PERRY, Ga. (2/17/2012)

You may have been fishing or been in a kayak– but have you ever been kayak fishing?  Come learn how at the Kayak Fishing Symposium scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012 (9 a.m. – 2 p.m.) at the Go Fish Education Center in Perry, Georgia.

“Kayak fishing is a fun way to fish and experience Georgia’s natural resources,” says Go Fish Education Center Manager Jeremy Wixson.  “People of all ages and skill levels are invited.” 

What will you experience at the Symposium?  Kayak fishing professionals will help you learn how to fly fish and provide tips on river fishing, coastal fishing techniques and instructions on how to catch “monster” bass – all from a kayak. 

While at the Go Fish Education Center, view aquariums, “drive” a boat, “fish” for a Marlin or other species, see a working hatchery, climb through a 3-D beaver lodge and much more.  You also can try your luck at the fishing pond. 

The Go Fish Education Center is located at 125 Perry Parkway, Perry, Georgia 31069.  The symposium is included in the center’s admission-$5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for children age 3-12.
