The West Palm Beach Fishing Club (WPBFC) has announced its guest speaker and meeting topic calendar for 2016. The regularly scheduled meetings feature Florida fishing pros who will reveal valuable tips and advice on how and where to catch the area’s most sought after game fish.
“This may very well be our best line-up yet," said WPBFC Chairman Pete Schulz. "We have some outstanding anglers, captains and even a few outdoor media celebrities coming to the club this year. They are among the best in the business and are very generous with their fishing know how. No matter what your experience level is, there is always something new to learn when it comes to fishing, especially from the all-star cast we have coming to the club this year.”
The meetings are held the first and fourth Wednesday of most months at the WPBFC’s historic clubhouse, located at 201 Fifth Street (corner of 5th Street & North Flagler Drive), in downtown West Palm Beach. Inshore and offshore topics are featured. Local, regional and nationally recognized fishing experts cover the techniques, locations, baits and tackle that work for them.
“This year we will be conducting several hands on workshops related to the featured meeting topic which are always quite popular," said Schulz. "The meetings also provide a great opportunity to talk with the pros and network with other active anglers. The Fishing Club continues to fulfill a very unique role in the community.”
Annual membership in the WPBFC costs $80 for adults, $25 for juniors (age 10 - 18) and $15 for pee wee’s (kids up to 9 years old). Family memberships are available for $150. There is a $15.00 processing fee for new members. A WPBFC Lifetime membership costs $1,500.
