Shimano School is returning for a new season in 2021.

The livestreaming video workshops, hosted by JP DeRose, will feature engaging fishing topics and special guests.

Events are scheduled every two weeks starting today at 8 p.m. (ET) with Shimano pro Benny Ortiz discussing “Slow Pitch Jigging” on the Shimano Facebook Page or the company’s YouTube Channel.

“The Shimano School seminars were developed to connect our consumers and fishing fans with some of the industry’s best anglers,” said DeRose in a statement. “In our first season, we covered . . . topics that touched fisheries from across North America, including freshwater, inshore, nearshore and offshore bites.”

“I’m incredibly excited to dive further and deeper into the never-ending techniques that drive innovation and development in fishing,” continued DeRose.

Upcoming Shimano School Seminars include May 11 with Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson on smallmouth and walleye techniques; and May 25 with Capt. Jack Sprengel on topwater fishing.
