Hook a Kid on Fishing – July 18, 25 and August 1 , 15

Freedom Boat Club has partnered up for the 2nd year with SeaCoast Anglers to take under privileged kids aged 9-15 fishing. Many of these children come from local churches or youth groups in the North Myrtle Beach and Little River area. Most have never had the experience of fishing in our ocean or creeks.

We had our first trip out June 27th with 12 kids who had a fantastic time on the water.  Special thanks to Hank Grenfell, Mauro Altizio, Duane Skinner and Donn McCrary for captaining the boats for us.

We need 3 members who have had off-shore training willing to volunteer to captain the boats for the following dates:

  • July 18
  • July 25
  • August 1
  • August 15

You will need to arrive by 7:45am for a departure around 8am.  You will return around noon and lunch will be served between 12:30 and 1:00pm.  If you are willing to captain one of the boats, on any of the dates listed above, please call me at 843-732-4711.
