After the reception on Friday evening, Saturday’s learning sessions were conducted on beginner and intermediate/advanced levels by local speakers: Capt. Tony DiGiulian/bluewater fishing, Capt. Wayne Conn/bottom fishing, Chuck Baldwin/inshore fishing, Twig Tolle / fly fishing and Capt. Lee Lavery/fishing basics.
The seminars utilized several “hands-on” fishing exercises on Saturday afternoon, such as spin casting, net casting, knot tying, gaffing grapefruits, conservation, boat handling, backing a truck and trailer and reeling against pressure.

“The whole experience was so great that we will be back again!” said Brenda Franklin, Rock Hill, SC. On the majority of the boats, practically every participant had a chance to fight a fish.
