Free Fishing Seminar – Catching King Mackerel – MarineMax Panama City Beach

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla., (August 19, 2015) – MarineMax Panama City Beach will be hosting a free seminar on targeting and landing king mackerel, September 12, 2015, at 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. The seminar precedes the Treasure Island Marina’s Annual King Mackerel Tournament which will be held September 19, 2015.
“Our resident instructor Tom Putnam, Owner of Half-Hitch Tackle Stores, along with professional fisherman Tim Broom, Manager of Half Hitch Tackle, Destin, will teach the techniques, methodology and proper tackle for catching these powerful game fish,” said seminar host Bob Fowler, sales consultant and broker, MarineMax Panama City Beach. “With the king mackerel tournament one week away, this is a perfect opportunity to hone your skills and gain confidence.”

King mackerel are streamlined and a very fast species. Most king mackerel caught in the area are 2 to 3 feet, but larger ones can exceed 5 feet.

“These popular pelagic predators will have your reels screaming and put up a really good fight,” continued Fowler. “Having the proper tackle and knowing how to target and land king mackerel will give you a great advantage.”

As usual, your host Bob Fowler, will be providing the ‘half-time entertainment’ with his professional vocal styling.
