OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Johnson County Community College is offering a continuing education course with a new hook, literally, for anyone interested in crappie fishing.

The course, called Crappie University, begins on Tuesday, Feb. 7. It continues on the Monday night dates of Feb. 13, 20 and 27. Class times are 7:30-9:30 p.m.

"Crappie fishing is no longer just a cane pole and bobber sport and the pursuit of this sport fish has never been more popular," said Gary White, founder of Crappie University. "Across the country, the crappie is gaining on bass as the No. 1 sport fish."

The course will be taught by Barry Morrow, a crappie guide in Oklahoma and Missouri who has been featured on the Sportsman’s Channel; Terry Blankenship, a frequent crappie tournament angler who has won many events; and year-round expert crappie anglers Kevin Rogers and Jim Dant.

Call JCCC's Continuing Education office at 913-469-2323 to register or enroll online. The fee is $89.
