KIDS FISHING FOR TOMORROW is a non profit organization dedicated to young men and women between the ages 10 to 17 years of age. This will be our first year with this new program so it’s very important to get all to support, sponsorships and donations that we can. We can’t make this happen without your support.
KIDS FISHING FOR TOMORROW is a program that will help protect the sport of fishing for generations. This organization is like no other in the country. We are on the water with these young adults 120 to 150 days a year. Our goal is to get as many kids on the water with our team of State Licensed Fishing Guides and Professional Tournament Anglers. On any normal given week we will be running two shifts a day 5 days a week. One morning shift and one afternoon shift. Each boat will take a maximum of 3 young men and women per shift weather providing.
- These kids will learn how to tie different knots on hooks and swivels.
- They will learn the art of jigging, trolling with planner boards.
- Different techniques to fishing with slip bobber's.
- They will learn how to read fish locators and GPS mapping

KIDS FISHING FOR TOMORROW is designed to cost parents of these young men and women nothing. This program is designed to get kids on the water no matter what background they come from. We understand life is not always easy. Whether from single or combined parent families we encourage all young adults that want to learn and challenge themselves in the world of fishing to participate in our program. Not all families have the skills, knowledge or personal resources available to expose their child to the outdoor experience of fishing. We encourage all families to take advantage of this program. For some of these young men and women, this will be there first time fishing or fishing from a boat.
KIDS FISHING FOR TOMORROW will give those kids the opportunity to get out and be hooked for life. We want to get kids on the water and teach them the proper art of fishing so that they will have the opportunity to catch fish and the possibility of catching a fish of a life time.
KIDS FISHING FOR TOMORROW can not do this without your support. We truly need all the support we can get. We have a lot of expenses as you can imagine. Please help support this great community organization with a simple donation or become a sponsor. Every dollar raised for this organization will be used to help serve the needs of the kids and support our mission.
Not all kids can throw a football 50 yards or hit a baseball 300 feet but they can learn how to fish which they can carry with them the rest of there lives.
Our goal is to move this program into as many states as we can through your support. Remember these kids are all of our futures. We can’t do this without your support!
