Trolling and chunking for yellowfin tuna. Tips for targeting cobia and permit on the wrecks and reefs. How to catch smoker kingfish. These are three of the 16 topics presented by speakers at the West Palm Beach Fishing Club (WPBFC) between now and November. Speakers are local, regional and nationally recognized fishing experts who cover the techniques, locations, baits and tackle they know best.
“Our speaker schedule features some of the best in the business,” says Tom Bzura, the Club’s communications coordinator. “We choose speakers who cover techniques for catching species club members are most interested in, both inshore and offshore. Some of these fishing pros might look familiar from last year, and others are speaking to club members for the first time. It’s important to keep it fresh and bring new insight to each meeting.”
Speakers are hosted the first and fourth Wednesday of most months at the WPBFC’s historic clubhouse, located at the corner of 5th Street & North Flagler Drive, in downtown West Palm Beach.
“Seminars are definitely free for members and we do allow non-members to attend. If they like what they see and learn something, we encourage them to join the Club,” invites Bzura. Annual membership is $80 for adults, $25 for juniors (ages 10-18) and $15 for peewees (kids up to 9 years old). Family memberships are available for $150. www.west palmbeachfishingclub.org
