He finished 20th in the Bassmaster Elite Series qualifying for his sixth Classic earlier this year and now Ish Monroe comes back to California, headling the Fishing Instructional Night School (FINS) at Anglers Marine in Santee, Aug. 3.

A flipping expert who has contributed heavily to the growth in frog fishing throughout the West, Monroe is not just another me-too professional angler. Although he calls the Delta and Clear Lake his “home waters,” the fact is he has matched casts with the best in the business all across the nation on all types of waterways.

The free FINS seminar (7 p.m.) will taste even better when preceded by a free barbecue (6:30 p.m.), an Anglers Marine tradition. Look for special prices and some cool drawing prizes as well. You can make a reservation by calling (619) 449-3474.

Anglers Marine Santee is located at 10960 Wheatlands Ave., Suite 101, Santee, CA 92071.
