About Off the Hook


Bring your family and friends and visit one of our Off the Hook pop up fishing experiences this summer!
 

Off the Hook is a family-friendly, pop-up experience bringing the joys of fishing to cities all summer long. Off the Hook offers a free, interactive introduction to fishing complete with games, snacks and more — showing families it’s even easier to get out fishing than they may think. Off the Hook is presented by Take Me Fishing™ to help people #GetYourFishOn and plan a day out on the water.
 

These events will create a place for your family to learn and develop fishing skills with fun for all ages!  Events will be held rain or shine.
 

A special thank you to our equipment and outfitting sponsors, L.L. Bean, Zebco and Bass Pro Shops/Cabela's.
