TULSA, Okla. – Crappie University, expanded to 17 classes among 11 states for 2018, has an exceptional lineup of expert instructors ready to teach anglers of all experience levels how to better their skills for catching crappies, a species often called America’s favorite panfish.   

Registration is open for the program that focus entirely on new and best tips and

techniques for catching crappies in the geographic locations where held, ranging

from Texas to Maryland. Enrollment processes vary by hosting school, but typically

include call-in and online options. Registration fee is $89 per person.

 Missouri-based “Crappie Coach” Barry Morrow has been involved in Crappie University since its start three years ago and says the program is a must-attend for anyone interested in the species. 

“The instructor lineup reads like a Who’s Who of the crappie-fishing world,” Morrow said. “Each has his or her favorite techniques to share, but often it’s the more subtle takeaways, like a specialty knot or perhaps a tip for keeping track of how deep your bait is running, that become the eye-opening aha moments.”

Noted Oklahoma crappie authority Todd Huckabee agrees. “Seminars are one thing, but these classes are so different because everyone who attends is there for one thing only – learning more about catching crappies,” he said. “As a result, the classroom interaction is amazing and the networking among like-minded anglers is unmatched. I’m a huge fan of Crappie U.” 

Bobby Garland Crappie Baits returns again as the presenting sponsor of the educational program for the 2018 season.

The 2018 Crappie University schedule is as follows:
