Venice Beach Florida, C.A.S.T. for Kids

Postby IslandAngler » Mon Aug 06, 2007 8:59 am

The Island Anglers- C.A.S.T. For Kids Fish Event 08/05/2007 05:48pm
The future of fishing and the survival of our marine resources squarely rest in our children's hands. A couple of years back, a number of us old salts, Gary Anderson, Captain Mike Zgrabik, Mike Cavallo, banded together to form a close knit group to which we fished and became protectors to our environment. Age was not a factor but the love to fish was and through this common thread, The Island Anglers was born. We started as a fishing club with a website to display the trophies caught by the children and have evolved into a conservation marine network whose role is to deliver a message of Positive Mentoring through Fishing. Casting awareness to Florida fisheries and aquatic habitats, The Island Anglers, primarily focused on our young people of today, represent stewards to our marine environments. Our website, www.theislandanglers.com is but another tool in a quest to the survival of our future fish stocks, a resource guide and a conservation organization-teaching people, especially children, about fishing, freshwater, saltwater and marine habitats, through aquatic resource stewardship.

August 18, 2007 , Venice Beach Florida, C.A.S.T. for Kids, hosted by The Island Anglers and co-hosted with WSRZ Oldies 107.9 FM, taking place on the Venice City Pier, Venice Florida. Sponsors include but are not limited too Mote Marine, Admiralty Marine, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Shakespeare Fishing Tackle, The City of Venice Florida, Skeeter Fishing Boats, Zebco, Plano, Eagle Claw and more.

Forty disadvantaged and disabled children will get the opportunity to catch fish, learn the meaning of being responsible stewards to their marine environments and take home a hat, shirt, rod, reel, tackle box and plaque with their picture to remember the day.
