Great Neck scouts go fishing
Posted: July 25, 2014

Great Neck Cub Scout Pack 178 enjoyed four hours of sunshine-filled beautiful Great South Bay fishing  aboard the 65 foot Dolphin Fishing Charter Boat out of Freeport over the July 4 Holiday weekend. The Cubs, accompanied by family and friends totaling 92 people ages 2-82, set out to earn the Cub Scout Belt Loop for Fishing. This required them to become familiar with and discuss local conservation regulations as they related to species, size limits, appropriate fishing seasons by species, and limits on catch. The Cubs were also required to bait their own hooks, using strips of squid and small, silver baitfish. The final requirement was to try to catch a fish! The “new fishermen” caught and returned to the bay several “short” Flounder (under 18”), Sea Robbins, a few large Skate (relatives to Manta Rays), a sand shark and several species of crabs. The boys learned the importance of returning undersize fish to the water so they can mature, breed and sustain ever better fishing seasons for the future. Cub Scout membership is open to all boys grades 1-5. Interested families may visit the website: www.greatneckcubscouts.com or email Cubmaster Brian Glueck: GreatNeckCubScouts@yahoo.com.
