    For 16 years, over 6,000 seminar graduates have praised the program and returned to learn more. Upon receiving an award for attending the event eleven times, Lurue Lord, Statesboro, GA, said, "Fishing is a lifelong passion. The best anglers never stop learning!" Participants have released sailfish and more on their first-ever fishing trips.

    For this event, held in conjunction with support from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, women will travel from several states for an exciting weekend of educational and hands-on fishing activities, habitat conservation and to meet other female anglers. The seminar provides an opportunity for the ladies to use their newly-acquired techniques to fish inshore or offshore on their choice of a group boat, flats boat or sportfishing boat.
