Free Fishing Seminar Each Month
Learn from the pros! The first Thursday of every month join us for a FREE Seminar at Harbourside Marina in Englewood from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. The Captains from Bad Habit will be giving high caliber instruction including cast netting, inshore, offshore and blue water techniques that are specific to the inshore and offshore bite during the current month.
Attendees will be divided into four groups. Each group will be at a fast-paced station for about 20 minutes before moving on to the next skill.
These seminars are open to all ages and experience levels. Food will be available on site for purchase from The Lighthouse Restaurant.

“Rough day after a cold front. Thats alright we made it happen. Surprised we even boated that many. Half the fish spitting up pieces and were gorged. You hit tons of spots snd made it happen. Much appreciated some captains would have stayed at spots longer, or gave up trying u picked up and moved countless times to find the meat. All you can do. One of the few times its fishing not catchin. A good time!”
“I said it before. The kids learned a thing or two and stayed engaged. The adults had non stop fishing poles handed to them when we got on the fish. For everyone to have the best day of their vacation together on one boat is would seem impossible, but these guys pulled it off! First class outfit!”
“This was our 3rd yr n a row & 5th trip fishing with Captain Jason Sherrill last week. So far he has not disappointed. This yr infact, I wanted to “GO BIG” & BIG we went!!! Had the ultimate fishin trip of a lifetime & I can honestly say that this man will put u on fish….. BIG FISH!!! Can’t wait to do it again”
