  1. Hi! I want to learn how to fish properly with my wife.

    What equipment will we need to attend the fishing classes in barth pond?

    1. No equipment is needed for classes except for notebook for notes and a phone to take pictures of rigs. All equipment is provided.

  2. Mr. Wilkens,
    Can you sell me some of the chum/ fish attractant you used in your Oak Brook attempt to catch the most fish in a day? I watched you for an hour, and was very impressed.

    If you no longer carry it, can you tell me who sells it?
    Thanks, David Riske

    1. I can make some for you – yes, and I am working on a mix packet where you can make your own with simple ingredients.
      Let me finish up some testing and I will get it ready for prime time. It works really well in two ways- but I have to create some instructions.
      Good to hear from you – johnny@chicagofishingschool.com is my address.

  3. So classes will start possibly Sunday May 3rd. Can you tell me:
    – Time start
    – Time end
    – Do you have spaces for 2 or 3
    – Where will we meet?
    – Will all 3 sessions be on Sunday?
    – What will be dates of the subsequent class sessions?

    1. I Will have 8 spaces available for each group classes and the first sessions are fishing 1. I will run fishing 2,3 on the same day later in the month. These are 1.5 hour classes so – we don’t want to pack so much information in that you doin’t get all the details- please I DO have space for 2 or 3 right now and credits are good all season so – no worry if we cancel for weather or extended Pandemic issues. Classes will be outdoors and I have a built in spacing system so we will keep everyone safe. If you have any questions – please email me Johnny (at) ChicagoFishingSchool.com … I look forward to getting outside and fishing!

    2. Classes were postponed – June 11 they begin. Limit 9 people per session. This is session one of 3 in a 3-part class. I am now combining parts 2 + 3 in to one mega-class so it is easier for people to take, learn and digest. F1 will be two dates in June. F23 will be one date in June and one date in July.
