August 26, 2009

The IGFA School of Sportfishing will kick off its 12th session starting at the end of August. According to Jeff Mackin in the IGFA education department, the class offerings include a variety of inshore and offshore fishing topics.

“The classes this fall will include such topics as the ‘Fundamentals of Sportfishing,’ ‘Successful Swordfishing,’ ‘Bottom Fishing Wrecks and Reefs,’ ‘All About Live Bait,’ a brand new inshore class called, ‘Secrets to Surf Fishing’, and more,” said Mackin. “Once again we’ve been able to attract some of the finest captains from around the area to lead each class. Not only do these instructors guide clients to trophy fish day in and day out through their charter businesses, but they also have a knack for being able to teach our participants their secrets through hands-on interaction.”

Classes are held on Tuesday nights from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum in Dania Beach, Florida.


This sessions schedule includes:
September 1, Successful Swordfishing with Capt Drew Kettelhut
September 15, All About Live Bait with Capt Shawn Fairbanks
September 22, Bottom Fishing Wrecks and Reefs with Capt Bouncer Smith
September 29, Secrets to Surf Fishing with Capt Steve Kantner
