He’ll teach viewers about the diverse fisheries on Florida’s East Coast when he joins host JP DeRose on Shimano’s ‘Fishing School’ LIVE series this Wednesday, August 12 on Facebook and YouTube starting at 8 pm EST (7 pm CST, 5 pm PST).

Carter and JP will discuss a variety of topics from targeting Indian River snook and cruising the beach for jacks and tarpon to fishing with jigs for red snapper and grouper offshore. And with him being live from White’s Tackle in Fort Pierce, Florida during the event, he’ll showcase the right Shimano rod and reel setups that can contribute to a successful day on the water.
