All-Star Walleye School.

Returning for a second year, the All-Star Walleye School is back for anglers ready to ramp up their skills in 2012. Moving to one of the hottest walleye factories around, the event will take place August 9-12 on Lake Mille Lacs in central Minnesota. McQuoid's Inn will host the event. All-Star instructors include Mark Courts, Kevin McQuoid, Paul Meleen, Brian Brosdahl, Bill Shimota and more depending on the size of the class. The plethora of high caliber National Guard FLW Walleye Tour anglers is what sets this school apart from others.

"The quality and variety of instructors at the All-Star Walleye School is just phenomenal," shared Chip Leer, host of the event and the National Guard FLW Walleye Tour. "And we found the skills very teachable in this format: time in the classroom along with application time on the water. It makes all the difference in the world." Class attendees from the previous year would agree.

"The pros honed my skills so that I'll be a much better fisherman from here forward," shared Jim Weaver of Elkhorn, Neb., after last summer's school. "When you consider the classroom time, the time on the water with the pros, great food and really nice accommodations, it was a great value." Fellow All-Star Walleye school participant, Jim Kloth of Wisconsin had this to add. "I learned one new technique which afforded me the chance to land a really nice 27-inch walleye during our time on the water. I would recommend this school to all fishermen who would like to hone their skills. This was a first-class event, start to finish."

Leer visits with each participant in the weeks before the school. That way, he can funnel information to the instructors about the content the participants really want to cover. "Some of the techniques are particular to a specific lake or river situation," added Leer. "We take those concepts, break them down in classroom time and then apply them on the water. And you can go fishing in Kevin, Paul or Mark's boats with them in the afternoon with the deluxe package. That whole time is a rich teaching-learning environment."

"These were really top-of-the-line instructors for walleye fishing, and I loved fishing in their Ranger boats and seeing all their gear," shared Dan Fix of Lincoln, Neb., after the last school. "Getting both classroom time to discuss and then hit the lake to put it to practical use was great." Ranger Boats is a returning sponsor of the event, as are the National Guard FLW Walleye Tour and Liddle Marketing Company. "You won't find a better group of walleye fishing instructors; these are truly the All-Stars of the sport," shared George Liddle of Ranger Boats. "Nice guys, very approachable. But also guys that you have seen, and will continue to see, at the top of their field come tournament time."

Packages start at $700 and interested parties should contact Leer at (218) 547-4714 or e-mail: info@liddlemarketingcompany.com.
