(Sep 10, 2015 - FT. LAUDERDALE, FL) The "Ladies, Let's Go Fishing!®" No-Yelling school returns to the Sport Fishing Capital of the World for their Florida Keys event Nov. 13-15. The weekend conservation-minded university offers classroom presentations, networking, hands-on skill fishing activities and optional charter fishing trips. Classes will be held at the BPOE Elks Lodge in Tavernier FL with fishing out of Islamorada.

Activities launch Friday evening with a networking social and appetizer contest from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Saturday morning presentations begin at 8:30 am, including Offshore, Inshore and Bottom Fishing, plus Fishing Basics.

A second party will be held afterwards at Seaside Glass Works.

On Friday and Sunday are optional inshore and offshore fishing trips out of Whale Harbor and Robbies, followed by a fillet demonstration.
