  7. Wow! Sammy and I are truly grateful for the opportunity to spend our time talking walleye with everyone who attended our seminar today. It's an honor and a privilege to share our experiences with a group of avid walleye anglers, and we learned a lot from all of your experiences as well. We had a great time, and hope everyone picked up something that will help them have more fun catching fish and enjoying their time on the water! Special thanks to the folks who had to stand the whole time :)! The staff at Gander Mountain has assured us that they will have more seats set up for the seminar on Saturday the 14th!(Your support was awesome!) Kudos to Gander Mountain and Contender Spoons for all that they do to support our sport, and a huge thank you to OGF for providing an open forum to support the angling community and to help promote these events!

    There were a lot of great questions and some excellent suggestions as well. Many of you asked if the seminar on the 14th would be different than the one we presented today. The answer is yes! Sammy and I are tweaking things up on the Great Lakes Trolling Techniques and due to numerous requests we've decided to add a special segment on Trolling Techniques for Inland Lakes. If you enjoyed this last seminar, the one we're presenting on the 14th will have new big water information as well as the bonus segment on trolling our local inland lakes for walleye!

    Sammy and I have also decided to free up more time after the seminar to hang out and talk with everyone in attendance. Heck, we'll stay and talk fishing till the store closes and after that we can run over to Inner Circle and pick up where we left off! Our thanks to all for your support!

    We're looking forward to meeting you all on Saturday the 14th at 10:30.

    Sincerely,

    JC & Sammy

    John, Sammy, thanks, great seminar. Learned quite a few things that I can do to improve on my trolling and put a few more walleye in the boat. Will try to make the 24th. My Gander scratch off was 15% off so picked up a few things while I was there.
     
  11. Mac,

    We're glad you enjoyed the seminar. The next date is Saturday March 14th. We'll be changing things up a bit. Hope you can make it.

    We'll review the basics and then focus on the big water techniques that you want to learn more about! We'll have a lot to discuss on trolling techniques for our local inland lakes and we'll have all the gear we use for those apllications on hand as well!

    P.S. The staff at Gander Moutain has assured us that there will be extra chairs so no one has to stand this time!

    We're looking forward to meeting you all on Saturday the 14th at 10:30.

    Sincerely,
