Learn the techniques that will make you a better inshore fisherman.  From throwing artificials to using live bait, a variety of tactics are covered.  Efforts are made to discuss fishing techniques during all seasons, but certain classes will focus on certain species depending upon the time of the year.  Class consists of 1-2 hours of "ground school" the PM before the actual full day of fishing.  During the fishing day, the Captain will work with each student individually to insure they learn proper techniques.  You will go away from this school a better inshore fisherman.
