In this episode of the New York Fishing Podcast, George speaks with Captain Joe Paradiso of the Nautic Lady. Capt. Joe talks a bit about last years fishing on the North Fork. He is also President of the New York Sportfishing Federation, www.nysf.org and he represents New York anglers on many boards. He dedicates a lot of his time protecting both our fisheries and our rights. They talk about the role of the NYSF in protecting anglers’ rights and their Annual Fishing Show in Freeport. Their show is February 15, and 16 at the Freeport Recreational Center.
The NYSF Annual Fishing Show is the longest-running fishing show on Long Island. There are plenty of local tackle providers and they have a speaker lineup that will keep you busy learning from some of the region’s top anglers. The last look of updated speakers has some of the best of the best and this show is a great way to start getting ready for next season.
They also have a great auction on Sunday where you can get some great deals on tackle while supporting the NYSF, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and their efforts.
