Hey Anglers,

I've been thinking of putting this together for awhile now. I want to organize my first Fish and Learn.
The purpose of the Fish and Learn is to provide an avenue for new or seasoned kayak fishing
Anglers to get together to FISH and LEARN. I have learned many hard lessons as a season angler and I feel that it is time to pass this knowledge along.Come Fish, Come Chill, Come Learn.

MBF tomorrow will be handled by Ariel_Sea. Tomorrow at the LAUNCH.
20 dollars for those wishing to participate between friends.

Final Update:
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone going out tomorrow. I know there are some new faces so please make sure to come over and say hi. I got some hot dogs and chicken wings for the grill tomorrow, in addition to fruit and drinks. I think that I mainly come for the food.

Bait and Tackle:
I am going to go catch bait in a little bit for tomorrow, however, i shouldn't be your primary bait supplier tho  :smt005. I will also tie up some halibut tackle to share for those who may need some assistance. I will have about 20-25 three way leaders at the event.

The T-shirts are in and they loook great!! I always print a few extra but i don't have much. Come catch me if you want to pick one up.

Just a reminder to sign waivers in the morning. I will try and make it out to help any new people with the basics of halibut fishing. We will come in for lunch around 1 and i'll do the full seminar from 1-2 p.m.
I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.
