Saltwater Fishing for Beginners - North Port   

This class is for people who are new to saltwater fishing in Florida. Maybe you have fished in Florida but still consider yourself a novice. Come join our class! There are always some new tips and tricks to learn, including: • What kind of rod and reels you need and how to use them. • What kind of tackle to use: hooks, sinkers, popping corks, leaders, etc. • Fishing from a boat, kayak, pier, and surf fishing. • What live baits to use and how to use them. • What artificial lures work best for different species of fish. • How to catch seatrout, redfish, snook, flounder, and other inshore species. • Safety concerns when fishing from a kayak and boat. • How to tie a variety of fishing knots. This is a 6-hour class spread out over 3 days. The first two class meetings will be in a classroom. The third class will be a hands-on class at Boca Grande Beach. During the first class you will be told what to bring for fishing on the beach. I will recommend several good bait shops for buying fishing equipment.

Please bring a fishing pole and tackle. A detailed supply list will be given out during the first class meeting. A saltwater fishing license is required for Florida Residents under 65 years old, but not required for Florida residents over 65. This will be reviewed in the first class.
