If you’ve been thinking about attending the popular Wilmington Full Day Saltwater Fishing School, on Saturday, February 6, at the Coastline Convention Center from 7:30-5:30, then you better get your tickets by the end of this week. The Wilmington Full Day School is almost a sold out event, and will most likely be sold out by this weekend.

There are still plenty of seats available, though, for the Wilmington “Long” Half Day Saltwater Fishing School (7:30-1:30) on Sunday, February 7, at Coastline.

Both the Wilmington Full Day and Half Day schools offer hands-on, classroom-style instruction provided by over twenty local captains and guides that live and breathe the North Carolina coast. In addition to the Wilmington Full Day and Half Day schools, Fisherman’s Post is also once again offering schools in Morehead City (February 20) and Greenville (March 12).

Topics range from inshore, nearshore, surf, offshore, and blue water fishing. Captains will cover a range of topics that includes techniques, equipment, strategy, locations, terminal tackle, electronics, bait, etc. There will be main seminars and several hands-on stations going on concurrently all day long, so you will always be able to find a session that most interests you.



“With six concurrent sessions to choose from each hour, you never have to sit through a seminar that doesn’t interest you,” notes School Director Gary Hurley. “If you want to only focus on inshore, then you’ll have inshore choices all day long. And if you prefer offshore, then choose from our many bottom fishing, vertical jigging, or trolling seminars.”

Fisherman's Post has teamed up with local businesses (Tex’s Tackle, Chasin' Tails Outdoors, and Overton’s Sporting Goods) to provide all of the “hands-on stations” with terminal tackle and materials. Participants will work closely with captains and guides, handling many of the materials that the captains address.

“Our school gets participants tying, rigging, twisting,” adds Hurley, “and simply working with a variety of tackle and products. Our muscle memory approach and our low instructor/student ratio tends to last a lot longer and produce better results for our participants than trying to retain information by just sitting in a theater auditorium and listening to people on a stage speak for hours.”

The Wilmington Full Day ticket price is $100 until January 30 or $110 after. The Wilmington Half Day School is $70 by January 30 and $75 after (kids under 14 can attend the Half Day School for $40), and included in your ticket price (beyond the extensive hands-on instruction) is breakfast, lunch (lunch not included in the Half Day School), a Fisherman’s Post t-shirt, drinks, snacks throughout the day, and door prizes and samples.

More information on the schools, including a complete list of topics, sessions, and captains, as well ticket ordering information, can be found by clicking on the “Fishing Schools” link at or by calling the Fisherman’s Post office at (910) 452-6378.
