Golden Eagle Fishing

Featured

Jump aboard the Golden Eagle with Captain Rich Falcone and sail the Atlantic Ocean in search of the BIG one!

That’s right, in recognition of any Scout selling $1,500 worth of popcorn this year, eligible Scouts and a parent will be invited to ride along with Capt. Falcone and go fishing in the Atlantic Ocean during a four hour trip.

Fishing gear and tackle will be provided.

Because of the temperatures immediately after our popcorn sale, we will be taking the trip sometime in April, May or June of 2015, when things get warmer. A date will be determined as we get closer to that time period and we will take weather conditions into account.
