Note: Completion of the Basic Angler Education Seminar is NOT required to participate in this activity

Our "Beyond the Basics" Education Seminar is designed for participants who have basic angling skills and desire to explore new angling techniques and add to their experience. Trip includes three nights lodging and meal arrangements; final meal plans will be announced later. There are two lighted piers on site for fishing and practicing your skills. Some activities may take place in the local area. The educational experience will be a combination of topic presentation, demonstrations, and hands on experience. There will be ample time to fish and practice what you have learned.

Lodging: Lodging will be at the Oak Island Lodge in Anahuac, Texas

Education Topics: Agenda has not been finalized but educational topics planned cover fish habitat and learning to "read the water", effect of weather on fish activity, use of artificial lures, safety, regulations, ethics and stewardship of our coastal resources.


Kimberly Sorensen, TPWD Boating Education Manager, will be conducting two days of boating and kayaking education and training for this event. Topics will include trailering and boat safety, launching and landing techniques and safety. The kayak sessions will cover safety, rigging your kayak for fishing, understanding weather, anchoring, and wade fishing from your kayak.

A Tournament Fishing Panel Discussion is on the schedule, covering everything from fishing your first tournament to planning a winning strategy.

We will have a "Cook your Catch" demonstration and dinner on Friday evening.

Fun activities will include a Casting Competition and Event Tournament.

And this isn't all, we still have a few presentations we are finalizing.


Participants who do not have their Texas Boater Education Certificate are encouraged to complete the online course offered by TPWD prior to this event. This certificate is required for individuals born on or after September 1, 1993 to operate certain vessels on Texas public waterways.
