The 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. event (now in its 24th season) is being held at the Regis College Fine Arts Theatre at 235 Wellesley Street in Weston. George Poveromo, host of George Poveromo’s World of Saltwater Fishing on VERSUS and Salt Water Sportsman Magazine’s Editor-At-Large, will headline the program, along with New England Boating contributor Barry Gibson, a prominent tuna and striper charter skipper.
