What to Expect...
One-to-one (or one-to-two) on the water instructional guiding.
Objective is to make you a better angler!
Learn how to catch fish, as well as, why and when fish bite.
- Come away with a better understanding for which lakes to
pick and how to attack those lakes to match the given
- Leave the lake knowing where fish are located. The idea is to
be more efficient when breaking down a lake to find the fish.
- Gain a better understanding what role the weather plays in
finding and catching fish.

- Build confidence in using artificial presentations. Leave with
the ability to go out on your own and catch fish with plastics.
- Find out when to use different types of presentations.
- Know where to present your bait on a given piece of structure.
Also discover the importance of boat control and how it can
make you a better angler.

- Learn how to put together the right setup for various
situations. Match the right reel with the right rod, the right lure
with the right line, etc.
- Gain a better understanding of how to read your electronics.
Learn all about the new systems and how they work. From now
on you'll know exactly what you're looking at.
- Walk away knowing that you can make a more educated
decision when rigging your boat with the latest gear.

It's All About YOU!!!!!
- Bring questions and the day will be tailored to fit your needs
and demands. The day on the water is indeed all about you and
what you want to learn. Let's have fun and work together to
make you a better angler!
It's no secret that we take fishing seriously and there is no
substitute for getting a hands-on approach to better
understanding both the tools and techniques for how to
become a better angler.

Whether you want panfish, bass, walleyes or anything in
between, a day on the water can be refined to ensure you get
the most out of the experience!!!
