When angler Jim Roberts of Boca Raton, Florida, attended the South Florida edition of the Salt Water Sportsman National Seminar Series on January 26, he listened to some of the best national and local pros discuss the how-to's and where-to's of catching more and bigger fish. But Roberts didn't know he would ultimately win the Seminar Series Super Grand Prize - a Mako 171 center console powered by a 90-hp 4-Stroke Honda outboard and fully loaded by the Tour's sponsors, right down to the Float-On trailer. Roberts's name was drawn from over 7,000 attendee tickets. The 2003 Salt Water Sportsman Seminar Series kicks off on January 11. For dates and locations, visit www.nationalseminarseries.com.
