Most exciting fishing experience
Any day on the water is exciting ! The most memorable day was in April 2015 only had 3 fish in livewell with only 45 min. left in tour. Hit one more area with bushes. A strong storm rolled in . Like a light switch, it was on "POW" ! I caught 2 fish 2 flips ... 7.21 & 5.5 lbs to finish limit.
How Jamie preps for a tournament
Research past history or present fishing info for the body of water you are going to fish. What type of lake ,season , water clarity, forage and structure . Pre practice and fish the conditions, know what the weather predictions are. Be prepaired ! Dont over think it, go with your Bass senses. Keep a positive attitude.
