I got the money for christmas to do a guide trip on fork so I can learn more deep water fishing and electronics. Now I read about the angler academy taught by Clark Rheem. What to do?!? What do yall think. Guide or Academy. Price is about the same and the academy sounds like a great learning trip. Not sure which way to go.

There are *some* guides on Fork that are excellent when it comes to teaching fishing techniques. There are others that de-emphasize this aspect of their service.

I would likely go with finding an excellent teaching guide at Fork.

I took the class from Clark. It depends on what you want to do. Go catch fish with someone who knows where they are or learn how to locate the fish on your own on any lake in the country. Speaking only for myself the class made the lightbulb come on for me for as eliminating water to find the fish.

Hey Chris, I bet he answers soon. I went out on the trip with him and his phone was constantly going off. The one thing I really liked was, he never even looked at....

Clark's instruction was really good....made alot of the mapping and sonar concepts really easy to understand. I know I definitely benefitted from the trip. The other thing that I liked is he made u feel like he had known you for a long time, felt like fishing with a friend. I've had good guide trips and trips where u were along for the ride.

Clark is a good dude.

It took a couple days to get back to me. He responded to the inquiry on his web page. I assume he is pretty busy with the classic coming up and the upcoming season.

Really looking forward to the map/sonar part. I think that is my weakest area. I feel I can catch them if I find them, just not sure I am always on them. Hoping this will help with that. Should be fun.
