Fish don’t stand a chance.


Father’s Day weekend, a collection of some of the most skilled fishing professionals ever assembled for one event, will share their expertise with anglers at the South Florida Sport Fishing Seminar Series and Expo at Harbourside Place in Jupiter. The day-long affair will feature inshore fishing guides and offshore charter boat captains plus professional crew members and fishing tackle representatives who fish out of marinas along the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches.


Topics covered include everything from how to fish with artificial lures in shallow water for trout to live bait techniques when targeting kingfish, sailfish and dolphin offshore. Bottom fishing the reefs for snapper and grouper, long-range fishing for yellowfin tuna, kite fishing, deep-dropping, live baiting for tarpon, permit and redfish, and how to target snook, how to catch cobia, and best tips for rigging dead baits all will be covered, said co-organizer Capt. Patrick Price of DayMaker charters in Stuart.


“It’s really a ‘build your own syllabus’ kind of seminar,” said co-organizer Seth Funt, a crew member of Boynton Beach-based tournament fishing team Three Buoys. “This will be something very informative for anglers whether they are beginners or experts themselves.”


Each presentation will feature several captains with experience in the topic sharing tips conversationally with attendees. Funt said when a particular presentation ends, the captains who presented will then move to a conference room where anglers who wish to learn more information can speak to them in a smaller setting.


“An angler will be able to ask more questions like how to pen live baits of someone like Capt Ray Rosher, or what are Capt. Ed Zyak’s favorite rigging tips when using a D.O.A. shrimp for a big trout on the flats,” Funt said.


Funt said Florida Freedivers of North Palm Beach will be there with its own section to help answer questions for people who wish to learn more about spearfishing cobia on area reefs, or perhaps learning the best spots to dive for lobster and spear hogfish in the Bahamas.
