Caroline I am an avid female angler displaying advanced skills for my age and fish out of Brunswick, Georgia and have a passion for showing youth anglers the joys of fishing. I am the creator of the Facebook Social Media communities Kids Can Fish and Girls Can Fish which has gained popular notoriety. I also star on the YouTube fishing channel also called “Girls Can Fish”. It is our hope that Kids Can Fish will help children develop life skills that can be used in the future such as problem solving, patience, and being present in the moment. We believe that fishing and positive relationships with adult mentors is critical to the development of happy children. Additionally, I am featured as the first Youth Pro Staff Team Member with Gulf Coast Sports Women and sisterhoodfishing.com (Fish with Caroline) As an angler, I primarily fish inshore for Speckled Trout and Redfish. While not using popping corks with live shrimp, I jig using Matrix Shad “Holy Joely” and Vortex Shad “Shrimp Cocktail” which bring great success on the coastal marshes and are easy for kids to fish with success. I must admit that my favorite inshore species are bull Redfish in the fall while using cut baits off the surf or in the coastal creeks and rivers. I also fish offshore in the spring and summer on the coastal reefs of the Atlantic for a variety of species, with my favorite target being Cobia and Red Snapper. While not fishing saltwater species, I primarily target Largemouth Bass. My spinning and casting baits of choice are plastics where I use Matrix Craw, Matrix Flukes, Matrix Hawgs, and the topwater plug Matrix Mullet. It is my goal to show youth anglers that fishing can be done at any age with baits that the adults. Most importantly, as the founder of Kids Can Fish, I want children to find the same passion I have with fishing because regardless of experience level, fishing is fun!
