These private instruction sessions focus on fishing for large-mouth bass with detailed information on bass fishing tackle and techniques by an accomplished Pro Bass Angler on Reelfoot Lake or Kentucky Lake in West Tennessee. Options for Pickwick Lake occasionally available.

This is not a party boat full of anglers, but a focused, one-on-one teaching experience from a Pro Bass Angler. Each lesson will last for up to 5 hours for a flat rate of $500 for one individual. Father & child or husband & wife sessions are available for an additional fee of $75 for the second person. No more than one additional person may accompany the person taking the lesson.

Lesson includes use of John’s Bassmaster Opens Tournament rig consisting of his 2022 Skeeter bass boat with 250 HP Yamaha outboard, equipped with Humminbird electronics, Power Poles, life jackets, fishing tackle, Lews rods, reels, line, and Strike King lures for use and demonstrations during the session.

Full payment is required to secure a reservation and must be received within 7 days of booking. In case of a cancellation, the payment is fully refundable, less a $100 processing fee, if the written cancellation request is received at least 10 days prior to the scheduled session date. If not cancelled within this required period, the total fee is non-refundable.

Requests to move a scheduled trip date are the same as cancelling and re-booking unless an open date is available. If open dates are not available a $100 processing fee will be withheld from the refund. Weather is often variable but booked sessions are not cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
