About our Founder

Johnny Wilkins fished in 3 World Championships for Team U.S.A. qualifying as one of the 5 best American anglers, fishing in Portugal, Belgium and Italy for the United States. Catching all species in any lake, he will teach you the direct line to catching fish. He currently holds the world record (most fish caught from shore in a 24-hour period) with 2,011 fish caught on 1 hook. The shore fishing record.

Johnny has been teaching for 20+ years and has perfected the methods that get brand new fishers catching as well as improving the catches of disappointed veteran anglers. Johny will open up your world to an adventure of “catching” while others “fish”. In a  1/2-day lesson or full day, a group fishing class,  he can change local ponds into adventures. Your fishing will go from dull to  flying fish or a trophy fish of a lifetime at your local pond, close to your home. Families have been learning to catch fish without a boat, from shore (or using a boat) more than ever. Johnny has taught over 1,000 people how to catch more fish and also created a fishing tackle store   www. livebaitfishingtackle.com that features fish-catching tackle, most not found in any stores.
