Saltwater Seminar Series in Charleston Feb. 9

The magazine that focuses on saltwater fishing is bringing its acclaimed National Seminar Series back to Charleston for 2013. Host George Poveromo is a senior editor at Salt Water Sportsman magazine, and stars in the World of Saltwater Fishing TV show on the NBC Sports Network. It may be frigid outside on Saturday February 9, making it a great day to attend class indoors all day about how to catch more saltwater fish. The seminar begins at 9 a.m. and will conclude by 4 p.m., and will have a cadre of experienced fishing captains sharing their knowledge. In 2010 the auditorium at Charleston Southern University was packed with about 300 saltwater anglers eager to learn more about fishing tactics and tackle, and they will use the same location this year. I first attended the National Seminar Series in 1995, and the 2013 edition will be the 26th year for this popular saltwater event. The fee to attend is $55 and is considered a good deal considering it includes six hours of instruction, a course textbook and a one-year subscription of Salt Water Sportsman magazine. Is a saltwater textbook valuable? You bet it is, and I can still put my hands on my 1995 copy. Bad weather days, when one cannot go saltwater fishing, offer the perfect time to pour over books about tactics and let that knowledge sink in, while checking to make sure your tackle box has the correct equipment. Attendees will also receive a goodie bag with boat cleaning products, fishing line, offers for tackle discounts and more. Plenty of fishing equipment will be given away on February 9 during door prize drawings. In 2010 the giveaways included gear from sponsors like Sperry shoes, Penn reels, RayMarine electronics, Suffix fishing line and Rapala fishing lures. Best of all, you will be with a room full of saltwater enthusiasts who are ready to share fishing stories, and excitement about upcoming fishing trips.
