Thursday, October 19, 2023
7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

Reel in the fun! Set sail two miles offshore and cast your lines in waters 80 to 300 feet deep off the coast of West Palm Beach at our Annual FAEP fishing tournament.

Catch sailfish, cobia, mahi, tuna, wahoo and kingfish while aiming for the biggest, most unusual, and most fish caught titles.

The crew provides all you need: a charter boat with captain and mate, bait, license, rods, reels, ice, water, sodas, and snacks. Filleting and bagging your catch is included! Just bring sneakers, sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, and a camera.

Register for our fishing tournament at the same you purchase your conference pass.

Note: No coolers are allowed on the boat as the boat provides one for you.
