Virginia Key, Fla. — Fish live in a watery parallel universe, unfamiliar to most humans. Understanding them and their habits, especially when trying to catch them requires great deal of knowledge. Mark Sosin, who has spent decades as a fish watcher and angler, teaching a generation of fishermen the tactics, tackle and the techniques of sustainable marine angling will be the fourth speaker in this year’s Sea Secrets lecture series on Wednesday, April 7 at 6 p.m. in the Rosenstiel School Auditorium, 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway on Virginia Key (next to the Miami Seaquarium).
As executive producer and host of “Mark Sosin’s Saltwater Journal” broadcast on Fox Sports, Armed Forces Television Network, and MyOutdoorTV.com, he has become one of America’s most well recognized fishing authorities. A member of the of the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame and the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, he will discuss his career, as well as his recent book, Mark Sosin: A Sportman’s Memoir.
