We are in our 3rd year of offering family-oriented fishing lessons here in Gahanna, OH! All classes are held on a local private pond and are fully interactive. We provide all the fishing rods and bait, so all you need to do is show up and get ready to catch some fish!
Classes are open to all ages and we encourage parents to sign up as participants as well. Remember: Children who have not yet graduated 6th grade must have a parent or guardian on site at all times.
Fishing Basics Night at Go Fish Academy is a fantastic way to enjoy a great fishing experience. We provide all the equipment, including fishing poles, baits, bobbers and lures AND have experienced anglers on hand to give you advice and help you be successful! Come and experience “The Reel Deal Guarantee” – If you don’t catch a fish, your next class is free!
Ready to test your skills against other anglers? We hold occasional fishing tournaments on our local ponds. Longest Bluegill and longest Bass will take home something a little extra as winners in our derby!
Fishing: Bass Fishing
Ready to move beyond catching bluegill? The Bass Fishing class will teach you the techniques to start catching big bass! Bass are one of the most popular fish that anglers target, and with a few tips and tricks of the trade, you’ll be catching bass in no time! We’ll use big hooks, plastic baits, night crawlers and more – depending on the season. You’ll learn which types of lures and rigs to use on different types of water and the best part…? You’ll probably catch a bass during your first class! All equipment (rods, reels, lures and bait) are provided so no need to bring your own fishing pole. These classes are held on private ponds and most of our time will be spent fishing!

My first bass!
“Fishing was never part of my life and I had only done it a handful of times. Brad is a perfect teacher for the beginner…he has patience mixed with excellent technique. The experience was not only enjoyable, but I learned things that I can do on my own next i go out AND I actually caught fish!”

My boys loved it!
“Thank you for helping us make these fun fishing memories with our kids! Our two boys, ages 8 and 6, had the best experience with Go Fish Academy and can’t wait to come back. Would highly recommend!”
