Cape Fear Christian Sportsman, A ministry of Christ Community Church, is hosting "Fish Fest '11." This school is open to anyone, and kids and wives are welcome. There is no cost, but a $20 donation is suggested, and the first 150 registrants get a full color custom t-shirt designed by Mark Ray. Come and learn everything you ever wanted to know about local fishing but were afraid to ask and be sure to bring a friend! The class will be from 8am-5pm February 19, 2011 at Christ Community Church (4555 Fairview Dr., Wilmington, NC). A light breakfast and lunch catered by Middle of the Island will be provided. You can read more about FishFest ‘10 in the December 21, 2010 Star News Article, see what last year's attendees said about the event on ncangler.com, and see pictures of the event at Cape Fear Christian Sportsmen > Photo Gallery. If you have any questions post them to this thread and I will do my best to answer them.

Register now at www.capefearsportsmen.org/fishfest to make sure you get your free shirt designed by Mark Ray!

Hey guys....I attended this last year and its a great way to spend $20 bucks (donation). You get to pick the classes you want to attend. You may want to bring a few extra bucks...always a display or 2 with some great deals.

Shirts!

Hey all...man have I been waiting to share this with everyone! We just got the final design back from Blue Water Shirts. They did an awesome job of taking Mark Ray's art and making it sing on a t-shirt.

If you want a shirt sign up for the event! We will also plan to have some for sale during the Fish Fest if you want extras. If you are interested in an extra shirt, it would be helpful to us if you would post to this thread so we can get an idea of how many to order. Also, let me know if you would be interested in children/youth sizes or long sleeve versions.

Been to the last 2, going to this one also. Great info from great Captains, always learn something new.
We should have a meet & greet before hand to put faces with names ........

If you can't go fishing this is the second best thing .........
And they have had great prices on some tackle in the past. Last year paid $4.50 for MirrOlures MR's ..... ICM

I too attended this event last year and will truely miss being there this year due to my daughter being at Duke Medical Center. This is an AWESOME MINISTRY and is the best organized and most well informed event that I have been to, and hopefully with the LORD willing I will be at the event next year. Christ Community Church has really put alot into this Event and if anyone can go, even if you don't get a T Shirt, please go and fellowship with other fishermen and women that love the Lord.
