Non-Member: $150          Member: $135
During this class we plan on teaching the kids the basics of fishing, how to rig a fishing pole, to cast and how to deal with a fish once you get it back on the boat. They will have ample opportunity to fish in multiple places throughout San Diego bay. They will have the chance to fish in North Bay and South Bay in some secrete spots in the bay that we have had very good luck fishing in. Kids will learn to stay safe while they are out on the water fishing. The fishermen will learn one new skill per day then we will have them apply it for an hour and a half to 2 hours of fishing that day. Goal for the kids taking this class is by the end of it they will know how to rig a fishing pole, stay safe on a boat while fishing, teach them where and when the fishing will be the best and of course teach them how to fish! Club will provide poles and bait each day.

The marked success of the Coronado Yacht Club can be directly attributed to the principles upon which the Club is organized. The main reason for its existence is to work for the benefit of Coronado and to that end to develop Glorietta Bay as a yacht harbor, attract yachtsmen to the harbor and encourage yachting in San Diego Bay.
