Perch Habitat & Habits

I thought the class was good. Learned a lot about different Perch habitat and habits. Often, right after discussing something, the perch would demonstrate it… I am far better prepared after the class to catch perch than I ever have been. Like anything, you just need to know how and where to start, and then start refining the skills from there.

Great Teacher & Extensive Knowledge

Andy was amazing, great teacher, shared his extensive knowledge in ways I understand and can remember. The written materials are very clear and a great takeaway. Plus the knife, lures and spices weren’t expected but very much appreciated. It was very affordable as well. THANK YOU!!!

Worth The Time And Effort

The class was great and really worth the time and effort. Andy is very knowledgeable and did a great job sharing his knowledge with us. He was very thorough and of course it is always fun when you are catching fish. The boat and equipment are top-notch. Thank you for a great day on the lake!
