Information is POWER in the sport of fishing!  The Bass University offers students unparalleled access to championship information and strategies.  Each day there is a hands-on break out session with the pros as well as a question and answer round-table discussion, both of which are designed to provide the most information to Bass University students.  Saturday includes a dinner with the pros contest and on Sunday all of the youth anglers are invited to have pizza with the pros.  Classes run from 8am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Bass University classes feature the newest techniques and tips from top pro anglers! 

New to this year, The Bass University’s On-Water Training trips are customized to fit each student’s needs. Beginner to advanced, Bass University’s instructors will work with each student angler prior to the trip to develop a program that is designed to move their fishing knowledge and skill-set to the next level. On-Water Training instructors will contact their students prior to the trip to develop a custom training strategy.  The instructors will focus on the lessons and techniques that will drastically improve their student’s fishing skills and knowledge!  Following each training day, a practice program will be developed for each student to work on and continue to develop as an angler.  Each student will have access to their instructor following the trip to ask questions as they continue their training.  On-Water Training is the best and fastest way to develop good angling skills that last a lifetime!

The Bass University is committed to growing the sport of bass fishing through education by offering the premier fishing educational programs in the country!
