Take Me Fishing Hutsell
The goal with of Take Me Fishing Hutsell is to bring our students, families, staff, community, and state together to spend time outdoors engaging in the lifetime sport of fishing. Take Me Fishing Hutsell (TMFH) is the largest aquatic education event in the state of Texas run through a public school. We had over 350 participants and 100 volunteers last year, totaling more than 450 people at Peckham Park. Texas Parks and Wildlife is a sponsor and supporter of our event and constantly refers to Hutsell as the prime example of how to institute a fishing program at school.
Students are taught many aquatic and angler skills through physical education class in the weeks leading up to Take Me Fishing Hutsell. Some of the topics and skills (but not limited too) are: rules and regulations of fishing in the state of Texas, aquatic conservation, how to cast a fishing pole, how to assemble a proper tackle box, how to bait a hook, how to tie several angler knots, how to attach a hook to the fishing line, how to stay safe while fishing and being outdoors, fish identification, length and weight limits on caught fish, fish anatomy, and much more!
