MarineMax Panama City Beach set to host fish seminar

The “Trout and Winter Fishing on Our Bays and Gulf” seminar will be held at MarineMax Panama City Beach in a classroom setting.

MarineMax Panama City Beach will host a free seminar on targeting and landing trout and other bay and gulf winter species on Saturday from 9-11 a.m.

The “Trout and Winter Fishing on Our Bays and Gulf” seminar will be held at MarineMax Panama City Beach in a classroom setting.

“Join us for our last free seminar of this season. Our resident instructor, Tom Putnam, owner of Half-Hitch Tackle Stores, will teach the techniques, methodology and proper tackle for fishing to successfully catch trout and other winter species,” seminar host Bob Fowler, sales consultant and broker at MarineMax Panama City Beach, said in a statement. “Tom will share his trade secrets to catching winter trout and other great fish on our beautiful Panhandle bays and Gulf.”

MarineMax said trout and other species can be caught in the Panama City Beach area all year, although as the water cools, fish move to warmer waters inshore.

Trout and other fish species are cold-blooded, and their body temperatures stay about the same as the water they swim in, which factors into slowing their metabolism. Temperate waters in the bays and rivers around Panama City are warmer and provide sanctuary — good news for local fishermen looking to catch trout, MarineMax said.

“Having the proper tackle and knowing how, where and when to find trout and winter species will give you a great advantage. That is what this seminar is all about,” Fowler said.
