Ask a Fisherman

October 8, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

The Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum is hosting a free public opportunity to “Ask a Fisherman.” Are you curious about local fishing? Come speak to commercial fishermen about what they catch and how they target specific fisheries. Ask questions about equipment used and what they’ve seen out on the water. Children of all ages are encouraged to participate.

This event will be held during the Florida Maritime Museum’s 24th Annual Cortez Nautical Flea Market which will be held on Saturday, October 8th from 8:30AM to 12:30PM. Visit the Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum booth from 9:30AM to 10:30AM to chat with a mullet fisherman and from 11:00AM to 12:00PM to ask questions of a bait fisherman.

Free event parking is available in F.I.S.H. Preserve at 116th St. and Cortez Ave, Cortez, Florida. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with The College of the Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum.
