Getting Ready for Stuart/Treasure Coast LLGF

Just a couple weeks and we will be in the Stuart area for the LLGF University.  This is your last chance to attend the event until the fall! Get ready for summer and good fishing! Learn new skills, meet new friends, and have a fantastic weekend of learning! After Saturday’s workshops, we gather back on Sunday morning to put into practice the skills we learned.

Early Entry Pricing Still Available!! Yes, get in on the reduced rate of $99 (regular price of $135). Bring a friend, make it a Mom and Daughter weekend, or your spouse. If you’ve ever wanted to learn about fishing, but not with a bunch of men, this is the place to learn!

Those teaching skills are local fishermen and women who are well respected in the community for their knowledge and love of teaching others.

We start the weekend with a Networking party Friday night at the Stuart Corinthian Yacht Club, 4725 S.E. Capstan Ave. Stuart, FL. Those in attendance are encouraged to bring an appetizer to share, and there will be judging for the best appetizer.  All are welcome, including those not registered for Saturday’s classes. Doors open at 6:00. We will also hold a raffle, and the auction items are available for bidding.
