For the month of November, MANG is partnering with the West Palm Beach Fishing Club! Founded in 1934, the WPBFC has been fighting for the sailfish, one of the fastest marine creatures and favorite in recreational fishing. Eighty-five years strong, the club continues to play a leadership role in South Florida marine conservation, innovation, and education. Since 1938 the WPBFC, an environmental role-model, is credited for being the first to develop and promote the use of red, catch and release pennants as an alternative to bringing sailfish back to the dock.
The WPBFC is truly a historic organization. Sportsmen and fishermen spend a lot of time on the water and are often the first ones to notice a problem with local fish populations. Consequently, they are also the first ones to sound the alarm that something is not right. Over the decades the WPBFC has filled a niche in the community in a variety of ways such as introducing kids to fishing, creating artificial reefs and partnering up with environmental organizations to protect our natural resources.
