The American Littoral Society (ALS) will hold a fish tagging program at its headquarters.

The tagging program will take place from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. on April 15 at ALS’ main office, 18 Hartshorne Drive, Suite 1, Highlands.

Join Jeff Dement, ALS tagging program director, for a day of surf fishing and instruction on the beach. He will provide hands-on instruction with casting, knot tying, lure/bait selection and “reading” a beach. All participants will have an opportunity to use what they have learned.

All skill levels are welcomed. Rods, reels and tackle will be provided, but bring your own if you have it. Children under the age of 18 are welcome with a supervising adult.

Participants will meet at 8 a.m. in Building 18 in the Fort Hancock section of Gateway National Recreation Area’s Sandy Hook Unit.

Reservations are required for this program. The program will cost $20 for members and $60 for nonmembers.

Coffee and doughnuts will be provided, but bring your lunch. Space is limited. To reserve a space in the program, contact Jeff Dement at 732-291-0055 or jeff@littoralsociety.org.
