Will Host Annual Bass and Crappie University February 2018.

Midwest City, Okla. – Everyone has heard a fish story, the type that turns a small minnow in to a trophy Bass. The Rose State College Community Learning Center is doing its part to eliminate fish stories with our annual Bass and Crappie University. This unique class will be held February 2018, and will focus on teaching cutting-edge techniques for Oklahoma’s top two game fish, bass and crappie. This class will feature a personalized instruction from some of America’s top fishing professionals.

Class instructors will include three-time FLW Angler of the Year, and four-time FLW Tour Champion Clark Wendlandt; fishing-lure designer, crappie guide and crappie tournament angler, George Toalson; and Oklahoma largemouth bass record-holder, Bill Wright. Oklahoma Biologist Gene Gilliland, and long-time crappie guide and professional crappie-angler Kevin Rogers, will complete our group of instructors. Gilliland is known for his comprehensive book on fish care, and is the National Conservation Director for the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.). Rogers is a long-time crappie guide and professional crappie angler, and along with his father, was named 2016 Crappie Masters’ Team of the Year.

Classes begin Tuesday, February 6, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. in the RSC Community Learning Center Auditorium. Classes will be held from 7:30-9:30 p.m. on the following evenings:  Feb. 6, 8, 13, and 20.  The cost to participate is $89 per person.
