BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama community college is casting a wide net for students hoping to learn how to land a monster crappie.

Al.com reports (https://bit.ly/2iMhX2W ) that Crappie University is an eight-hour continuing education course beginning in February at Jefferson State Community College.

Crappie University founder Gary White said the crappie is gaining on bass as a sport fish. Crappie University, he said, is an accelerated course in the strategies and techniques for becoming a better crappie angler.

Instructors include Barry Morrow, a full-time crappie guide in Oklahoma and Missouri.

The cost is $89 per person, which covers all course materials, including samples of crappie lures and jigheads.
