The City of Corpus Christi announced Tuesday that they are taking applications for their Hooked on Fishing day camps.

One day camp will be held each day during Spring Break for kids ages 8-12. The kids will learn much more than the basics of fishing, but also the rules and safety of fishing.

Instructors will also teach the children about local marine life and conservation.

Spring Break begins March 12 in the Coastal Bend.
