Ish Monroe, a California native who fishes on both the Bassmaster Elite Series and FLW Tour Opens will be the guest speaker at Anglers Marine’s next FINS seminar on August 3rd at their Santee location. Monroe is known for his big personality and passion for the sport. He is also one of the hottest anglers on tour recently with three top five finishes in his last four Elite Series events. That run has moved him up from 48th to 37th in the State Farm World Rankings on Bassfan.com.
Ish is renowned for his flippin’ skills, polished on the big fish waters of the California Delta and Clear Lake up north. He claims flippin’ to not only be his biggest fishing strength, but also his favorite technique, so no doubt he is going to talk about the tactic in this seminar. That’ll be a rare treat, given not many anglers make good use of the flippin’ technique in San Diego, and little is shared about it from the big time pros in the area. Monroe also has a reputation for being a good frog fishermen, a technique that continues to gain popularity in San Diego because of the exciting strikes and big fish it can produce here locally.
Monroe has two tour level wins in 13 years as a pro. This season he reached the million dollar mark in career earnings.
As usual, Anglers Marine will offer a FREE BBQ and raffle at the event. The BBQ will open at around 6:30 PM with the seminar kicking off at 7:00 PM. There is no charge to get in, but it is recommended that you call ahead to reserve a seat as these events have seen unmatched popularity now drawing over 200 guests per night. You can call Anglers Marine at 619.449.3474 to get your name on the list.
On another note, please be on the look out for shoplifters during the event. Apparently some thieves have been taking advantage of the big crowds and distractions of the FINS seminars at Anglers Marine and stealing products from their tackle store. We’re hoping that the other guests can help deter or catch those that are stealing from Anglers Marine. These are free events, so to ensure that they can continue to put these on we need to help stop the thefts, so just be on the lookout and bring any suspicious behavior to the attention of the employees at Anglers Marine.
