Fishing Report

Like a lot of anglers, I've been restricted to staying home and waiting for the rain to subside. While home, I watched a few fishing shows and couldn't help to think about one of the most overlooked aspects of becoming a professional angler. You've got to be a salesman! Some of the best bass anglers I know never made it very far because they weren't the best in front of a camera, didn't have that certain look, or didn't speak as well as the next guy.

In the last several years, most events simply came down to fuel mileage strategies and not much on track competitive racing activities. Typically, most of the exciting racing occurred in the last 10 to 30 laps of any event ...
