  • Got Fish Event in Jackson

    Hello folks, hope the winter is treating everyone well. If you are not going to be in the woods, or on the water this weekend, this may be something for you. We will be in Jackson at the 'Got Fish' Seminar. We did it last year and it is really fun. You learn a lot, get to ask questions and get to spend the day in a very cool museum. I have posted all the info below. Hope to see you there.
