Keeping your confidence


When tournaments don't go my way

Take a breath, look at all of your available information (weather, water temp, water color, what has not worked so far). I had an event mid spring  in Central Florida. Made a hour run (one way) to fish less pressured water with a frog and the bite was not there. Hit four more spots (deep ledges, fish attracters, shallow weed lines) and by 11am I had one bite for a 3.5 pounder in offshore grass. I revaluated my conditions and made a move to a different body water with about an hour left to fish. Put three in the boat in the last 30 mins good enough for a 5th place fish and solid points. Listen to the lake, listen to the fish. We tend to get hung on what "should" work and not what is actually working. 


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Fish as a Co-angler for as long as you can stand it. It is the quickest way to learn what to do and what not to do in a tournment situation. Once you're confident in your abilities make the jump to boater and trust in your skills.
