Open-Water Fishing Vacation School

Those looking to book a date for Open Water School will all depend on my normal fishing schedule, please stay tuned to this site for new information!
What's in store for 2016?
As always, the Open-Water Vacation School will include:
  • A personal "tips and techniques" seminar from all pros and pro-staff on day one
  • Hands-on one-on-one time with each of the pros and pro-staff each and every day, showing you how to rig your boat and equipment
  • On-the-water time with the pros and pro-staff in your own boat.
  • Sponsor's tackle pack.

What you'll need:
  • A boat and motor that can handle large waters, rigged with sonar and GPS. We suggest no boat under 17 feet in length, with high-powered in-board or outboard motor that's as close to max for horse-power rated for the boat. A marine radio is not required but is suggested. Make sure your boater's insurance is up to date!

  • Equipment, including rods, reels, fresh line, sun screen, polarized sun glasses, life jackets and ALL safety equipment required by the U.S. Coast Guard.


Cancellations: At least 30 days notice of your cancellation is required for a refund. No refunds will be given after that (This is due to the upfront costs involved and arrangements made in advance of the school taking place). Thank you for your cooperation.
