Visitors to the New Jersey Boat Sale & Expo will not only be shopping for a boat, but they also will learn new boating and fishing techniques at the show's free seminars.
Set for Feb. 16-19 at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center at Raritan Center in Edison, the event will feature seminars on all four days with boating and fishing experts.
Presented by the Recreational Fishing Alliance and The Fisherman Magazine, the seminars will range from fishing tips and tricks to advice on electronics and mobile technology.
Topics will include bunker busting spring and fall stripers; fishfinder and GPS tips; using mobile devices for fishing and boating; New Jersey striper science; faking out doormat fluke; striper trolling; and cast netting.
On Captain's Day (Feb. 18) all of the seminars will be presented by local charter and party boat captains. The topics will range from fishing and trolling techniques to incorporating the latest electronics. Capt. Frank Crescitelli will open up the seminar room to throw a cast net.
