It’s that time of year again!
The Miami International Boat Show is a top place for locals and world travelers alike to brush up on their skills, pick up new techniques and immerse themselves in an angling wonderland.
After all, is there any better place than the lush, lively shores of Miami to put your fishing savvy to the test?
As we dream about the warm weather and choice fishing ahead, take a look at some of the show’s best attractions and educational opportunities for anglers like you!
Learn about new techniques
Wondering how to perfect your technique? Introduce the sport to someone new? Prepare for angling in a new destination?
Whatever your fishing goals may be, there’s a skill-building opportunity at the Miami International Boat Show to help you get there.
First, there are the classroom-style seminars. These sessions are taught by a variety of speakers, and revolve around an equally eclectic bunch of topics—from cruising tips to breakdowns of products worth having on board. And of course, there are plenty of things to learn from an angler’s perspective.
Fishing for Kids is another worthwhile seminar, perfect for helping you pass on your love of fishing! Here, participants will learn about the history of fishing, general tips, and three key beginner techniques for landing the big catch—and having some fun along the way.
Of course, we all know that fishing can be affected by the weather—the temperature, direction of the wind, time of day and much more. So anglers might also be interested in checking out the Wind & Seas seminar, a course on the interaction between water and wind and how to use your new know-how to plan for better cruising days.
Looking for a hands-on learning experience? On-the-water training provided by Boat U.S. gives you the chance to learn handling skills in real time. It’s the perfect opportunity for those anglers who are looking to make the switch from passenger to captain in the near future!
A two-part seminar on The Florida Keys, for example, will offer participants the chance to learn about navigating the Sunshine State’s signature island chain, as well as pros’ advice on how to fish the Keys sustainably.
Modern anglers are often looking for ways to enjoy the water in more sustainable, eco-friendly ways. If this sounds like you, be sure to check out the Conservation Village by Costa del Mar. You will be able to learn about marine ecosystems, and how to help protect them—and, to keep up the green work, you can even pick up a reusable water bottle to be refilled all weekend long (and beyond).
It’s the little things that really add up to a big impact—and what better place than this year’s show to build healthy habits that last a lifetime on the water?
