Special Fishing Event For Children - The Fisherman

Special Fishing Event For Children

On June 29, ECOs held a special fishing event for young children new to angling. ECOs DeRose, Macropoulos, and Cacciola took a group of 15 children from Little Flower Children Services fishing on the Long Island Sound onboard the Osprey, a private charter boat donated for the occasion and captained by April Peterson. I Fish NY staff joined DEC’s Division of Law Enforcement assisting and educating the kids as they caught porgy. The trip was organized and funded by DEC and I Fish NY, the New York State Conservation Officers Association, and donations by Costco, BJ Wholesale, Sun Screen, and the Cancer Services of Northwell Health, which donated reusable water bottles.
