Top angling authorities to teach class in January

South Florida anglers who want to sharpen their fish-catching skills for everything from snook to sailfish will want to mark down Jan. 28, 2012, on their calendars.

That’s the date of the 25th annual Salt Water Sportsman Fishing Seminar at Coral Shores High School in Islamorada.

The all-day session will be cohosted by magazine editors George Poveromo, host of a popular saltwater fishing show on VERSUS, and John Brownlee of Islamorada.

The cohosts will moderate a who’s-who list of instructors, including Islamorada swordfish and reef expert captain Nick Stanczyk; Marathon reef and offshore authority captain Jimmy Gagliardini; Key West light-tackle multiple world-record setter captain Robert Trosset; rod builder and back-country expert Rick Berry of Key Largo; Lower Keys dolphin guru captain Jim Sharpe; Islamorada flats and back-country guide captain Matt Bellinger; reef and bottom-fishing expert Bill Carson; captain Harry Vernon III of Capt. Harry’s Fishing Supply in Miami; and wahoo/marlin/swordfish authority captain Ron Schatman of North Miami Beach.

“The amount of cutting-edge information dispatched by our faculty teams borders on the incredible,” Poveromo said.

Backed up by hands-on demonstrations and full-screen visual aids, seminar instructors will tackle topics such as daytime swordfishing; dolphin fishing secrets, including targeting trophy mahis by the moon; catching jumbo yellowtails; reef-fishing tactics for grouper, sailfish, cobia, kingfish, snapper and amberjack; bottom fishing like the pros; wreck fishing; no-nonsense blackfin tuna techniques; trolling and jigging for wahoo; live-baiting; patch-reef fishing; scoring tarpon, snook and permit in channels, bridges and the flats; and catching more redfish.

The $55 admission price includes a course textbook, a magazine subscription and several useful fishing items, plus a chance to win door prizes and entry in a drawing among national seminar series attendees for a new 18-foot Mako boat.
