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 Heather.Sneed@MyFWC.com, 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 MyFWC.com/License.

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