To help connect more kids to the great outdoors, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s are donating more than 40,000 rods and reels to nonprofit organizations nationwide. As part of this Gone Fishing movement, they’re also organizing back-to-back weekends of free, family friendly activities, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. June 12-13 and 19-20 at locations in Miami and across the country.

Gone Fishing will feature catch-and-release ponds, free crafts, free photos (with free downloads) and free seminars. 

Kids will go home with a “First Catch” certificate.

The Miami location is at 11551 NW 12th St. For more information, click here or call 305-341-4200.
