Mothers, daughters, and families that are interested in learning to fish are invited to get away for a weekend of fishing and fun.

This year’s Treasure Coast Ladies, Let’s Go Fishing! University is May 29-31 will be held at the Stuart (Fla.) Corinthian Yacht Club. The weekend conservation-minded seminar offers classroom presentations, networking, hands-on skill practice and an optional charter fishing trip.

Activities launch on the evening of May 29 with a networking social and appetizer contest. Morning presentations on May 30 include offshore, Inshore, bottom and fly fishing, and fishing basics. Hands-on skill practice follows lunch for releasing, knot tying, dehooking, bait rigging, spin casting, gaffing grapefruits, cast netting, trailer backing, boat handling, reel maintenance and more.

An optional fishing trip is set for May 31, with choices of bay/river, offshore or group boat, followed by a fillet demonstration.

New for 2015 is the “Ladies Choice” option to bring a male guest or invite teens to include the whole family.

The seminar series is supported by major partners that include the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, National Marine Manufacturers Association, Discover Boating, Miami International Boat Show, Recreational Fishing and Boating Foundation, Mercury, Ranger Boats, Magic Tilt trailers, Humminbird, Minn Kota and Fish Florida.
