Founded in 2009 by Mike Iaconelli and Pete Gluszek, The Bass University (BU) offers acclaimed bass fishing education programs in three formats: online, in the classroom, and on the water. The Bass University builds programs that help anglers of all skill levels gain confidence in new tactics and techniques to catch big bass consistently. -“Never Stop Learning”
Each Bass University event location features six top-level tournament bass anglers, who will present a total of 12 seminars over two days. Each seminar is approximately 45+ minutes and covers cutting-edge bass fishing tactics, techniques, and tackle. Attendees can ask questions during the round-table discussion and rub elbows with the pros during breakout sessions. Bass University seminars are two-day events, but individual days can be purchased when selecting ticket options. Additionally, all students receive a T-shirt and a loaded gift bag full of valuable tackle and special sponsors offers. They also have a chance to win great prizes throughout the weekend.
Interested anglers can register online at TheBassUniversity.com/class-training to guarantee a spot in the class. Walk-in registrants are welcome if space allows, starting at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday and 7:30 a.m. on Sunday. Special rates are available for students and youths 17 and younger.
