Fishing is what Go Fish Academy & Tacklebox is all about.
We want people to discover the joy of fishing.

Fishing is one of those hobbies that doesn’t take a whole lot to get started with.  A basic rod and reel, a good pair of pliers, and a few good lures along with some hooks, bobbers and sinkers is really all you need to get out and start catching fish. And even when the catching isn’t so good, you’re still outside enjoying all that nature has to offer. 

Within Go Fish Academy, we offer a basic fishing course and beginner fishing lessons to people. While we are currently local to Central Ohio, the response for our area has been so strong that we are working to bring the Go Fish Academy to other parts of the country!

Hello! My name is Brad Fisher!

Fishing is one of those things that I have enjoyed since I was a kid.  Some of my earliest memories are fishing with my grandpa on Baptist Lake in Michigan. Whether it was from his boat or right off the dock, I’d spend hours fishing and catching turtles and frogs!

But it wasn’t until a few years ago that my hobby really started to grow.  I was rehabbing some houses in my community and was delighted to discover a treasure trove of fishing stuff in the garage of one of the abandoned houses that I had bought at auction.  Rods, reels, tackle boxes and lures – honestly, I didn’t even know what half of the stuff was or how to use it properly!  But it sent me on a journey of discovery and now I am hooked! (pardon the pun!)
