Congratulations, Salt Life Pro. Captain Cameron Kirkconnell!
New World Record Red Snapper!
From the Captain himself:
"Just got word from the IUSA that my 31lb Red Snapper was approved as the new World Record! Was a great day on the water and I'm stoked to add another one to the books! Thanks to Ryan Young for taking the photos after the kill!

Hook The Future Kids Fishing Clinics

Wow! Another year of the Hook The Future Kids Fishing Clinics... Each year though the clinics, we reach over 10,000 families.

At each clinic we teach fishing the water column, lure selection, casting, fish fighting techniques, how to be good stewards of the environment, fish identification, and more.  The kids seem so eager to learn and we teach them everything that we can during the time allotted.  


In addition to the rod & reels and other free tackle, we hold a kids-only free raffle, giving away tons of awesome prizes, provided by our sponsors. You should see a kids face light up when his number is called for the Salt Life prize pack! 

I love to see the kids that attended clinics in years past coming back to show me pictures of what they've caught and pitch in as a volunteer. 

Hosting the clinics is one of the most rewarding things I do
After ten years of clinics, I still look forward to the next one. 

Slimy 5's to the boat shows and events for allowing us to opportunity to impact so many families. 

As always, huge Slimy 5's to our sponsors for continuing to support getting the next generation involved in the sport of fishing.
Livin' the Salt Life....
And passing it on...
Slimy 5's!
