Jackson – The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science will host the annual “Got FISH?” fishing seminar program moderated by Bobby Cleveland, Outdoors Editor for the Clarion-Ledger newspaper, on February 5, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
“Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, don’t miss this group of successful anglers and biologists. They will answer questions about fish, fishing, fishing techniques and may even share the location of some secret fishing spots!” explains Aquatic Biologist Karen Dierolf.
Magnolia Crappie Club members will discuss lure selection and knot tying. Bring the family to experience the Museum’s touch tank and SCUBA divers feeding the fish in the aquariums.
According to the Mississippi Division of Tourism, fishing is one of the most popular outdoor activities in Mississippi. The state’s mild climate promotes a year-round season for the many game fish that thrive here.
“‘Got Fish?’ has become one of MDWFP’s most popular seminar series. This annual program provides useful information for seasoned as well as novice fishermen,” says Larry Castle, Director of Technical Programs for the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.
