About Us

Fishing, Faith & Fun is a Bible-based fishing program and part of the recreation ministry of Idlewild Baptist Church. This program teaches basic fishing skills including casting, reeling, equipment selection, and education on conservation, environment, and fishing regulations. Taught by certified instructors, Fishing, Faith, and Fun is an excellent opportunity to fish directly on Idlewild property and is a must for any young angler! Children ages 5 to 18 are welcome and parent participation is encouraged.

Season Details

Our annual six-week program runs on Saturday mornings from 9 am to 12 pm. The season runs March-April. The cost is $50 per child. The cost will cover the six weeks, a rod and reel, bait and other supplies, and the final week’s fish fry meal. We encourage parent participation and require no registration or fees for them.
