As a tournament angler, I require the right knot for the right application. The knot can mean success or failure. Quality line is extremely important, but even the best lines get nicked, cut, stretched and wear out. It is important to re-tie regularly to ensure you don’t lose your expensive lures, in-line fishing cameras, or other in-line equipment, and most importantly that fish of a lifetime.
If I were going to share 101 things to enhance your fishing success and enjoyment, what would that look like? Well, it would look like me rambling on about fishing, and here it goes. Yeah, I’m that crazy!
One of the most challenging and frustrating things an angler faces is being skunked. Whether fishing a tournament, or just out fishing for fun, getting zero fish in the boat isn’t a story you want to share. Don’t get me wrong, I truly love, as many others do, to just be on the water. It has a calming effect in your spirit. But we all desire to have a great day while catch something.
