May/june CURRENT practice groups

Summer Fishing Practice - Practice Makes Perfect!

HOW DOES THIS ALL WORK?

- We have 5 Head Coaches who organize their group/team providing fishing opportunities with them personally or with an assistant coach.

- These are "practice fishing" opportunities.  Coaches might be teaching a specific technique, pattern, skill, or ?  You are not necessarily just fishing/catching. 

- We will have shore fishing opportunities for larger groups with teaching opportunities.  

- Each head coach is organized a little bit differently.  It is your responsibility to keep in contact with your coach for that month and schedule fishing opportunities.

- Each coach will let you know where to meet, what the plan for fishing is, who you will be fishing with.

- Some coaches are available during day time hours in the summer!  You may go fishing at 7am or 5pm.

- Typical fishing times are 2-3 hours each time

- Come prepared!  


More Info:

- Groups switch once per month following each of our local tourneys.  This is so you get a new set of coaches to learn from and meet.

- This monthly time period also coincides with our FishDonkey App online tournament.

- Coaches communicate between each other to make sure kids are getting the opportunity to fish and at times share a local "hot bite" or tips to help make the experiences as enjoyable as possible.  

- These groups are picked with several intentional thoughts in mind.  We do not specifically put tournament partners, parent picks or best friends together when formatting these practice groups.  

Thank You Coach!

 As a High School team we are extremely fortunate to have volunteer coaches who help.  These coaches are dedicated to our team and want to teach students everything from the basics to more advanced techniques of Bass Fishing.  Coaches teach in the classroom and on the water.  Once fishing opener comes we want to do our best to get as many kids fishing as we can.   Thank you Coaches for volunteering!  We could not do it without you!
