Topsail Hill Preserve State Park invites you to learn how to fish from the beach here at Topsail Hill Preserve. Fishing is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, have some fun, and catch a tasty meal. Many people first learned to fish by having an experienced angler take them fishing. Unfortunately not every person that would like to try fishing knows someone that can teach them the basics. Regardless of how much help a fisherman was given everyone had to start from the beginning – as a beginner. Join a Park Ranger for a how to beginner’s lesson on surf fishing. Participants must have a valid Florida Fishing License. Fishing Licenses cannot be obtained at the park. Licenses can be purchased via myfwc.com, at local bait and tackle retailers or at retailers; such as Walmart. Enter the park through the main gate and park staff at the Ranger Station will direct you to the Beach Access Boardwalk, meet at the covered pavilion.
Fishing equipment is provided. Limited to a maximum of 10 guests, must register in advance at the Ranger Station.
