My mistake - it should have said 10am - 2pm :)
I'll have the address from them soon. It is on Phelps Lane behind the school and the pool - very close to where our last seminar was.

John Skinner will not be a presenter at this seminar. Last year he was a presenter and gave a great presentation on bucktailing. John will be giving a seminar at the Saltwater Fishing Show being held on March 29th-30th. He will also be giving a seminar at the LI Rec Fishing Expo at Farmingdale State College the last weekend in January. Yes, if there is still room at the end you can walk in.

There will not be any vendors at this event. There will be at our big show March 29th-30th.

For this event that's it for presenters - we will also be having a hands-on knot tying station.
I'm not sure how many years Ken has been surf fishing - I'm sure it's definitely more than me. I've only been surf fishing hard core for approximately 5 years. Ken will be presenting the majority of the material. Ken has been a surf fishing presenter at Capt Jerry McGrath's Sportfishing on Long Island Class and has been very well received. I was hoping Rich(RichTrox) was going to be able to present but he is unable to do it this go around - we'll have him soon. In the future you will enjoy hearing Rich who brings 35 years of experience to pursuing striped bass from the surf. Rich's incredible knowledge and experience is why I asked him to help out as a surf forum moderator - he knows his stuff and is very articulate. Since Rich couldn't go I was asked by a few people to be a presenter. Hey, there are many more people that could present that are more experienced than me or Ken. We'll be there doing our best and sharing what we know hoping people will walk away with some helpful information. The best part is the people that you meet and get to know. They have a lot to share as well.

Here are a few pics of Ken at a recent seminar he gave for Capt. Jerry McGrath's class...
