This year’s Fisherman’s Post “Hands On” Saltwater Fishing Schools are staffed by more than 14 local captains who will share their experience and insights on inshore, nearshore, river, 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 the Outer Banks, the Inner Banks, Washington, New Bern, Oriental, Cape Lookout, Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, Harkers Island, Swansboro, and more.

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 Overton’s Sporting Goods and our many tackle manufacturer sponsors, so you’ll leave the Saltwater Fishing School with some complimentary terminal tackle. You learn the rigs. You make the rigs. It’s hands-on!

The cost of the school is $100 by March 3 or $110 after March 3.

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 BBQ/chicken lunch, rigging materials, a goodie bag, and door prizes.

Our host hotel is Holiday Inn Greenville at 203 SW Greenville Boulevard, Greenville, NC 27834, with a “Fisherman’s Post” rate of $99.00. For reservations, you can contact them directly at (252) 355-8300. Be sure to make your reservation by February 20, and ask for the “Fisherman’s Post” rate.
