Morehead “Hands On” Saltwater Fishing School
Want to catch more fish more often in 2018?

This year’s Fisherman’s Post “Hands On” Saltwater Fishing Schools are staffed by more than 18 local captains who will share their experience and insights on inshore, nearshore, surf, offshore, and blue water fishing. They’ll cover a range of topics that includes techniques, equipment, strategy, locations, terminal tackle, electronics, bait, etc.
The captains selected for the Saltwater Fishing Schools are specialists in their field, and their backyard waters include Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, Beaufort, Swansboro, Emerald Isle, Harkers Island, Oriental, Washington, Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Sneads Ferry, Topsail, Oak Island, and Ocean Isle.
There will be main seminars and several rigging stations going on concurrently all day long, so you will always be able to find a session that most interests you.
The main seminars will have three captains working together to thoroughly cover their particular subject material, as well as give their different perspectives on what works for them.
The rigging stations are smaller and hands-on, with participants tying and making the rigs themselves. This hands-on approach will greatly enhance the walk-away knowledge you receive from the school. The rigging stations are supplied by Chasin’ Tails Outdoors and our many tackle manufacturer sponsors, so you’ll leave the Saltwater Fishing School with complimentary terminal tackle. You learn the rigs. You make the rigs. It’s hands on!

The cost of the school is $100 by February 16 or $110 after February 16. Seats are limited, though, so early registration is recommended.
In addition to the full day of learning and interacting with our captains, the price includes a Fish School t-shirt, breakfast, snacks, drinks, a Chicken/BBQ lunch, rigging materials, a goodie bag, and door prizes.
