Capt Lee Noga – About
Catching shrimp was made popular in 2010 when Capt Lee Noga claimed she could take any angler from zero to hero in under an hour.
A female licensed USCG OUPV 6 pack Captain from Edgewater, Florida, 2008.
Capt Lee Noga started a shrimping message board community in 2010 to post her personal shrimp reports for her friends. This website went viral. It was known as the “Academy Of Shrimping“ message board.
Social media changed the way we learned, so she moved the Academy Of Shrimping to Facebook.
Why did she start a shrimping report site in 2010?
When she wanted to learn this sport nobody would help her. She towed many times doing 60 mile round trips just to catch less than a dozen shrimp. There were no educational resources where she could teach herself the sport. It was then she decided to create an shrimping educational resource site and spare any angler the frustration she endured 16 years ago.
Academy Of Shrimping has over 15,000+ members in the Academy’s Facebook group (Florida Shrimping Academy – Tips & Tricks, if you want to search Facebook).
