Fishing Seminar Scheduled for Port Aransas
PORT ARANSAS, Texas -- Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Anheuser-Busch, the Coastal Conservation Association, , and the Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring special weekend-long events in September to help anglers enjoy and succeed in fishing shallow water.
Some of Texas' most outstanding shallow water boat experts, scientists, guides and anglers will provide all the information anglers could ever need to safely and successfully boat, kayak, and fish the shallow waters of the Texas Bays.
Seminars begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18 at the Port Aransas Civic Center. Cost is $20 per adult or $30 per adult/spouse for the daylong event. Children younger than age 17 can attend free.
On Sunday, Slowride Guide Service will lead paddle tours of the Lighthouse Lakes Trails from 9-11 a.m. There is no charge for paddling tours for those bringing their paddle craft. For those who wish to take a paddle tour and do not have a boat, rentals will be available by reservation and a rental fee of $20 per boat for the morning.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Parks and Wildlife Foundation of Texas for the Redfish Bay Endowment. Pre-register by sending cash, check or money order to Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce, 421 W. Cotter, Port Aransas, TX, 78373 or register at the Civic Center on the day of the event.
