When tournaments don't go my way
I don't worry about it. The fun and enjoyment of being on the water and visiting with my friends is reward enough win, place, or lose.
Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:
Spend a lot of time on the water. Try different baits. Learn how to present the various baits. Learn the seasonal patterns of the fish. Do not start tournament fishing with high expetations, Learn for each tournament and apply lessons learned. ALWAYS BE A GOOD SPORTMAN AND RESPECT OTHERS.
