Shimano School Heads Inshore with Capt. Jason Catchings

Learn to Catch Bull Reds and Gator Trout Along the Gulf Coast


Shimano School returns on Tuesday, July 27, with another informative and entertaining event. JP DeRose hosts these live streaming video seminars, featuring compelling topics and special guests from across the spectrum of the fishing world. Shimano School meets every two weeks, and streams live on the Shimano Facebook Page and the Shimano North America’s YouTube Channel.

Capt. Jason Catchings headlines this edition of Shimano School to discuss the presentations, patterns, and equipment that help him target inshore giants from Gulf Coast waters. He is the owner of Jason Catchings Outdoors, Inc: A premium outfitter and guide service that covers the Texas coast near Galveston and the productive waters off Venice, Louisiana. Catchings and his team of experienced guides teach anglers to tempt bull reds, gator trout, and other inshore giants using both conventional and fly tackle.

“Venice is the sportfishing capital of the world for both inshore and offshore fishing,” reflects Catchings. “Well known for its world-class speckled trout and redfish fishery, it has large numbers of both and also boasts many trophy-sized trout and bull redfish. Here, you can sight fish for slot reds and monster jacks in the shallow marsh ponds or go out to the oyster reefs and catch gator trout and bulls on topwaters. In Texas, we fish the deep bay systems of Galveston and Sabine Lake as well as the shallow marsh ponds of Sabine Wildlife Refuge. Here, we enjoy some of the best inshore fishing on the planet for reds, speckled trout, and flounder. I’m excited to share my decades of inshore fishing insights with all of our Shimano School guests!”

Make plans to attend Shimano School this season. We invite viewers to post questions to the Facebook and YouTube live streams, while Catchings and DeRose provide the answers needed to help viewers catch more inshore giants. Shimano School is in session starting at 8 PM EST on Tuesday, July 27.
