The Bass University continued today with a star studded line up of professional anglers including Pete Gluszek, Fred Roumbanis and Shaw Grigsby. The morning topics covered areas of fishing such as fishing grass with frogs and punching, cranking for Smallmouth and an in depth look at the drop shot rig and how to adapt it to conditions. These pros gave the crowd some fantastic tips, tricks and techniques to help them hone their skills.
After a brief breakout session, where again the students could pick the brains of the teachers, the class broke and reassembled after lunch. The afternoon session was again packed with information as students were busy writing down all the key notes from each speaker. Topics included Roumbanis talking about customizing tackle, Gluszek talking hair jigs, and Grigsby talking topwater and it all tying in to a great ending with Questions and Answers.
I had the opportunity to catch up with a couple students who traveled over 4 hours from Pennsylvania to learn from the pros. Matt Gaeng and Ryan Dailey said “there is no other platform like this for learning”. The environment The Bass University has with all of their classes is “relaxed and personable” where students can “ask the pros anything that’s on their minds”. Both Matt and Ryan are trying to make their way through local events and found this class, among others by The Bass University, to be inspiring.
Not only are students able to get amazing information from the pros, but also have the ability to network and chat with fellow anglers from across the region and nation. If there are no in-class sessions near you, The Bass University has the Online Training aspect where they record and post each and every speaker from every class around the USA. Coming soon, students across the board will be able to catch Bass University TV Live, inspired by Ike Live!
