Shimano School returns on Tuesday, October 26, 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.

Shimano pro angler Keith Combs headlines this edition of Shimano School. Combs just completed his 11th year on the Bassmaster Elite Series, and during that time, he has qualified for eight Bassmaster Classics, notched two Elite Series victories, and collected over $1.2 million in winnings. Whether chasing largemouth or smallmouth, up north or down south, Keith Combs is always in the mix.

Combs will describe some of his most productive tactics and critical pieces of equipment for chasing fall bass with crankbaits in this edition of Shimano School. "Color, action, deflection - these are just a few of the issues that bass anglers need to consider when fishing with crankbaits - especially in the fall," reflects Combs. "Successful cranking also means using the right tackle, from rod to reel and line. I'll also cover tackle and equipment selection during this Shimano School, with an emphasis on how I use the new Shimano Zodias glass crankbait rods to put more fish in the boat." With fall crankbait patterns in full swing across North America, this is a Shimano School that every bass angler will appreciate.

We invite viewers to post questions to the Facebook and YouTube live streams, while Combs and DeRose provide the answers needed to help viewers find success when chasing fall bass with crankbaits. Shimano School is in session starting at 8 PM EST on Tuesday, October 26.
