Fisherman’s Post is promoting a kid-focused fishing trip designed to introduce young anglers to saltwater fishing (offshore saltwater fishing).

Here are the basics for the 3rd annual Intracoastal Angler’s “Kids Day on the Vonda Kay,” a half day bottom fishing trip on the head boat “Vonda Kay” which launches out of the docks beside Motts Channel Seafood on Wrightsville Beach.

The date of the trip is Monday, July 22. This is a private trip, and we are limiting the trip just to adults and their kids so that the environment on the head boat is catered to and focused on our young anglers.

The cost is $75 per adult/kid combo (the Vonda Kay’s regular rate is $60 per person no matter the age, so the price would normally be $120 for one adult and one child). If you fish on the Kids Day, then that’s $75 total for one adult and one kid to go offshore in search of black sea bass, grunts, beeliners, pinkies, flounder, sharks, and more.

If you have an additional adult, then it is an extra $60. If you have an additional child, then it is an extra $30 (limit of three kids per one adult).

We are able to offer this reduced rate in large part because of the generosity of Intracoastal Angler, as well as Dave Gardner (Captain of the Vonda Kay). Intracoastal Angler is the perfect title sponsor of this event, as Philip David (owner) and Intracoastal Angler have a strong history of supporting kid-friendly fishing activities. Dave Gardner, too, has jumped at the chance to host this event, as his own love of fishing started as a young boy on a head boat out on the ocean.


On Monday, July 22, we will be meeting at the Vonda Kay by 8:30 am. Free parking is directly behind Redix.

Dave will have rods and reels for everyone, and he will also be supplying all the squid you need for bait. So you don’t need to bring anything for the fishing–everything will be provided. No need for a fishing license. The head boat’s license has you covered.

There will be mates on board to help the kids be successful. We will be returning to the dock around 2:00 p.m., and there will be someone on hand to clean fish if you so choose.

At the end of the day, we will be taking a big group photo of everyone lined up on the back of the boat holding their catch on a stringer, and this group photo will appear in the very next issue of Fisherman’s Post.
