The Bass University

After a fantastic Thanksgiving out in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, now I’m back home and am looking forward to this weekend where I’ll be traveling down to the Marriott O’Hare in Chicago, Illinois to attend the Bass University, put on by Mike Iaconelli and Pete Gluszek.

Here’s more info on the event. I know its late notice but if you can make the trip it’s supposed to be a fantastic learning experience.

Chicago, Illinois

December 4, 2010 – December 5, 2010

Why we’re coming:

The bass fishing in this area is fantastic! This was the most in demand area for us to come to. The anglers asked and we listened, so here we come Chicago. The bass fishing may be slow in December in this area, so what better time to sit down with the top names of the sport and get a chance to learn some new techniques. The Bass University is coming to Chicago on December 4th and 5th, 2010.
