Anglers can acquire inside information on how to catch more and bigger game fish in South Florida and Florida Keys waters at the Salt Water Sportsman National Seminar Series set for Saturday, Feb. 8, in Islamorada. The series is the nation's longest running educational course on recreational marine fishing tactics and techniques.

It is to be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. inside the Performing Arts Center at the Coral Shores High School, located at 89901 Overseas Highway (mile marker 89.9). Noted fishing authority and NBC Sports Network television host George Poveromo is to be joined onstage by legendary professional fishing captains including Skip Bradeen, an Islamorada-based charter skipper who is to mark his 50th year in the business in September 2014.

Other notable South Florida and Keys captains scheduled to appear include Dan Kipnis, Bouncer Smith, Mark Schmidt and Randy Towe. Nearly 30 no-nonsense course topics are planned for the presentation including secrets to running and gunning for bigger dolphin, effective reef-fishing tactics, trolling and jigging for wahoo, productive wreck fishing, channel and bridge fishing strategies, and targeting and scoring more redfish or mangrove snapper. Tickets to the seminar series cost $55 per attendee and include a course textbook, a one-year subscription or extension to Salt Water Sportsman magazine, several marine products and chances to win thousands of dollars worth of door prizes. In addition, a super grand prize drawing for a new Mako ProSkiff 17 is to be held one week after completion of the final seminar. Seminar series sponsors include the Florida Keys & Key West tourism council.
