Saltwater Fishing Mississippi Coast in Shaggy's Angler Camp

_____________________________________________________________

Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) global health crisis, the Marine Education Center, by following policies set by The University of Southern Mississippi, is canceling all person-to-person educational programming through August 2020 including our summer camps. The University remains open, and our team at the MEC will use this time of disruption to conceive and execute innovative on-line programs that continue our mission of education and outreach for USM's School of Ocean Science and Engineering.

Fish Saltwater Habitats Everyday!

Fishing, fishing, fishing and even more fishing at the week long summer camp. Young anglers fish everyday with our expert saltwater fishing educational team. Spend a week with our marine educators and learn a lifetime of saltwater fishing techniques. Participants explore fish biology and behavior and how weather, wind, moon and tides affect fishing. During the week, anglers will learn how to throw a net to catch bait and how to target speckled trout, redfish and flounder. Participants will fish a variety of saltwater habitats aboard vessels and at the islands.
