Saturday April 15th 8:00am-12:00pm
Each spring the West Palm Beach Fishing Club is home to a one-day marine oriented yard sale that offers great bargains for anglers and boaters.
The free event has become quite popular over the years and has developed a loyal following among those who enjoy sifting through used gear to find that one item they cannot live without! Serious buyers arrive early. The gate opens at 8 a.m. at the Fishing Club, located at 201 Fifth Street in downtown West Palm Beach (on the corner of North Flagler Drive and 5th Street). The Marine Yard Sale is of particular interest to anyone who is looking for a used fishing rod & reel or that ‘hard to find’ part for their boat. An impressive variety of used items are always up for sale including snorkeling & dive gear, downriggers, anchors, dock lines, cast nets, antique fishing lures, tackle boxes, boat fenders, coolers, live bait wells, marine electronics, boat propellers, terminal tackle, waders and more.
Proceeds from the Fishing Club’s annual Marine Yard Sale benefit the youth education and conservation efforts of the Palm Beach County Fishing Foundation, the Fishing Club’s charitable affiliate. The PBCFF conducts several youth oriented programs throughout the year including the popular Kid’s Fishing Day outreach program, a unique environmental education and fishing adventure event held each summer for underprivileged youth, and the Rod’s and Reels For Kids program which puts refurbished and new fishing tackle into the hands of needy youngsters and community youth groups.
