Hollywood, FL 04/03: Hook, Line and Sink 'Em-Dr. Lisa Krimsky
The Hollywood Hills Saltwater Fishing Science and Social Club's next seminar is "Hook, Line and Sink 'Em"
by Dr. Lisa Krimsky (FL Sea Grant) about the Fish Recompression Project on April 3rd. Fish
recompression gear that release deep reef fish at depth, instead of venting the fish after catching,
is being tested now. Dr. Krimsky will speak about the gear and preliminary study results at Boston
Johnny's Bar and Grill 2120 N Dixie Hwy, Hollywood, FL 33020. The April 3rd seminar starts at
7:30 PM or so after a happy hour and local fishing reports. This and all of our seminars are free,
with free door prizes, and are open to everyone.
A big thanks to Capt. Peter B Wright for an awesome seminar and sharing many of his ideas
with us on fighting big fish. It was a special night with many captains contributing and some
very nice door prizes-fishing harness, graphite rod, trolling lures, line-being given away. The
conversation before Peter's talk at the happy hour was on what do fish "smell" and the importance
of oils vs proteins; and coincidence, more on those topics at a later time, so come early and join
us for the happy hour and conversation.
