Annual Fishing Excursion Approaches

It’s that time of year again: the UT Campus Recreation- Deep Sea Fishing trip is approaching quickly. The trip will be held of Sunday, April 19. Departure from the UT Campus is at 7:30 a.m. and will return at 6:00 p.m.

The trip costs $20, but includes bait, tackle, fishing license, transportation to/from the launch site and fees for a six-hour saltwater fishing adventure.

‘This is one of our most popular trips, and no fishing experience is required,’ Charles Yezak, director of campus recreation, said.

Students will be able to keep what they catch, as long as they are within the legal size limit. Staff will also be available to gut, scale, and clean the fish for a small fee.

To sign up for the trip go to the Campus Recreation Office, room 113 of the McNiff Fitness Center, and fill out a participation form. The deadline to register is Friday, April 10.

The trip is only offered to the first 40 students who register and has sold out the past four years, and is expected to sell out quickly again this year.
