To everyone at Bass University, Thank you guys for all that you do! I signed up for a yearly subscription last year and learned so much from all of the seminars. It was so convenient to find seminars on every topic all in one place. Without Bass University I was always searching the internet to find out new tips and techniques but this really simplified things. I really appreciate you bringing this wealth of knowledge to us anglers so thanks again!
