Building Up Sports Academy

Next time you’re in Florida and need to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all, come down and book a trip with Building Up Sports Academy. Captain David has been running fishing camps for nearly 2 decades, teaching sportsmanship and teamwork to the next generation.

The day will be spent fishing Lake Clarke and the surrounding canals in his 22’ bay boat. This is a stable boat that will be able to maneuver into areas that are normally hard to reach. You can fish 360° around the boat.

The fish you’ll be primarily targeting is Peacock Bass. Lake Clarke also offers the opportunity to fish for Sunshine Bass and Largemouth Bass. The bycatch includes Catfish, Gar, Chain Pickerel, Clown Knifefish, Mayan Cichlid, and more. These are great fish to catch, and the Peacock Bass in particular will give you a fun fight as you try and bring it into the boat.

After you’ve taken your photo, you’ll need to release your catch. This keeps the fishery thriving, allowing future generations to wet their lines in these waters.

Included in the price of the trips are top quality rods and reels. These won’t let you down when reeling in a trophy catch or your first ever fish. Capt. David will prepare live bait for you before the trip, so no time is wasted on the day. There will also be chips, soda, and water on board for you.

Customers older than 16 need to bring a license and themselves, and the adventure can begin.

Book a trip with Building Up Sports Academy today for a fantastic fishing adventure!
