The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting an Adult Saltwater Fishing Clinic in Jacksonville Feb. 18.

The free, day-long clinic is from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Jacksonville University, 2800 University Blvd. N Jacksonville.

Advance registration is required. You can register here on the calendar. If you are having issues registering or have other questions, please email Heather Sneed at, or call 850-487-0554.

Participants will take home a lifelong hobby and leave with a new appreciation for the marine environment. They will learn the basics of conservation stewardship, fishing ethics, angling skills, safety and the vulnerability of Florida’s marine ecosystems in a fun, laid-back atmosphere.

Lessons include knot tying, rod and reel rigging, how to be a responsible marine resource steward, marine fish and habitat identification, catch-and-release techniques and more.

If conditions allow, participants will have the opportunity to practice their newly learned skills by fishing from shore or a pier. This event is a catch-and-release activity. All participants must have a valid recreational saltwater fishing license unless exempt. Saltwater fishing licenses can be purchased at your local tackle shop or online. Learn more by visiting

Fishing equipment and bait are provided during the clinic but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear.
