Well, I didnt win my first tournament of the year but it was fun! I had a pretty respectable 11-1/2# yesterday. I caught all of them on Vision 110 and 110 magnum jerkbaits in pro blue and gg gill colors at Pickwick. I broke one fish off and missed a few key bites on a brush hog. But it was the first tournament and I haven't practiced much which brings me to my point. Practice, practice, practice!!!!!. But you know, practice makes perfect. It provides you with confidence and allows better concentration which are crucial in fishing! I fished a completely different area than I practiced for the tournament in but those few fish I caught the day before gave me the confidence to go into a different area and catch fish. What I needed more practice in was catching fish on plastics though. So, the moral of the story is to practice it all and be ready when that time comes.
I am not a pro fisherman just Joe Average out here trying to enjoy the outdoors. I love to bass fish and love the competition of tournament fishing as well. Hope you find something within my sight that is entertaining or informative..
