It is that time of year again! The 4th Annual MBG Saltwater Seminar will be held on Saturday March 2nd, 2013.

We have a new venue this year: http://www.nantasketbeachhotel.com/
A much larger place, right on the water, to accommodate the amount of tickets/inquiries we had last year.

We are still finalizing the schedule, but we will have most of the same topics as years past with a few NEW ones. We will have an updated schedule finished around the new year.

Tickets are only $75 and we have 200 available this year! 50 have already been sold, so if you want to attend, do not hesitate to call us (781-545-6516).

Just a reminder to those wanting to attending our 4th annual Saltwater Seminar...
Saturday March 2nd 2013 at the Nantasket Beach Resort Hull MA..

Tickets are still available but have been selling fast with our limited ticket sales we expect to sell out before Mid February. We have sold out on all the past years. In order to keep our seminar with the best one on one experiences and the best speaker to patron ratio we must limit our ticket sales. So if you want to make sure you have a place at the table get your tickets as soon as you can.

The crew and our sponsors are starting to get excited about the 2013 season and our seminar is always a great way to kick the season off. I can't wait for those warm spring days and the anticipation of those reels screaming and the customers laughing.

A special thanks to all of our mates who spent many hours preparing for the event. Also a big shout out to all of our vendors who help make the event a success with their contributions to our raffle for the benefit of organizations dedicated to the preservation of Sport Fishing.

Another Big Thanks to our local TV stars from Wicked Tuna and the boys from North Atlantic Traders for letting me do a little Ball Busting during our reality show..

This years seminar is entirely dedicated to The Next Generation of Charter Boat Captains and Mates. The Oldest presenter at our seminar besides me... was barely breaking 30 years old but all of them have a lifetime worth of experience. Remember these Names they are already at the top of the game with a whole lifetime ahead.

These Kids are some of the most serious well respected young professional fishermen in the world. Most of them completed their 100 ton captains requirements before they where 19 years old. This group of young captains are second to none when it comes to age versus experience. They captivated the audience yesterday and it made me proud to be part of their lives..
