MarineMax store in Florida plans fishing seminar on Saturday

MarineMax Panama City Beach in Florida will host a free seminar on targeting and landing flounder and other area bay species from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday.

MarineMax said flounder can be caught in the Panama City Beach area all year. However, they are in greater numbers and are easier to catch or gig in the fall and into the early winter.

“Our resident instructor Tom Putnam, owner of Half-Hitch Tackle Stores, will teach the techniques, methodology and proper tackle for fishing our beautiful bays and how to be successful at fall floundering,” MarineMax Panama City Beach sales consultant and broker Bob Fowler said in a statement. “This magnificent season offers some of the year’s best fishing in our waters.”

Each participant will receive free instructional sheets and a Half-Hitch discount coupon.

“The real payoff for catching or gigging flounder is they taste great for dinner,” Fowler said. “Having the proper tackle and knowing how, where and when to find them will give you a great advantage. That is what this seminar is all about.”
