Open-Water Fishing Vacation School

The location and dates of 2013’s Open-Water School will be announced soon - In the meantime, we’d like to thank all of you who joined in on  the waters of Michigan’s Saginaw Bay, Saginaw River, Spring Lake, and the Grand River System. It was a great success!
What's in store for 2013?
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.
