The Corpus Christi Parks & Recreation Department is hosting a special camp for kids this Spring Break -- the "Hooked on Fishing Day Camp."

Kids ages 6-12 are invited to take part in the program from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. each day from March 10-14 at the Lindale Recreation Center. The program will teach kids the basics of fishing and conservation.

Those who participate will learn about marine life, fish anatomy, fishing safety, etc. They will also get the chance to go on a local fishing trip to test out the skills they learned.

Space is limited to just 13 kids a day, so register as soon as possible. The program costs $15 a day per child, and a lunch and snack are included.

When you register, have a copy of your child's birth certificate available. You can register online or in person. Just go to or call 361-855-0392 for more information.
