SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The 34th Annual Port of San Diego's Day at the Docks – themed “It’s all about fishing and so much more” – held April 21, celebrates the beginning of the spring sportfishing season. The free day-long celebration and festival is on the waterfront at San Diego’s Sportfishing Landing, Harbor Drive at Scott St., Pt. Loma. Parking on Shelter Island and frequent shuttles to and from the site are also free. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the docks will be buzzing with kids catching their first-ever fish and parents attending fishing seminars and checking out the port’s fleet of sportfishers that provides first-class accommodations while traveling to some of the world’s most prolific waters.
Festival attendees will observe and participate in the process that takes big fish from boat to table: cleaning and filleting the fish, preparing the fish by cooking, canning or for sushi . . . and some sampling, too. Sponsored and produced by the San Diego Sportfishing Council with support from the San Diego Unified Port District and the County of San Diego, the Day at the Docks festival also includes: * Day-long activities for the entire family; * Captains and crew plus an all-star lineup of experts presenting “how-to” on-board seminars; * More than 200 exhibits;
* Raffles valued at thousands of dollars of prizes, including fishing equipment, fishing trips, tackle and attractions donated by sponsors and exhibitors to benefit the San Diego Burn Institute; Live local entertainment; *
