Tournaments can be some of the most memorable times, and the highs from winning one cannot be put into words, especially for new participants. As an angler, you can easily lose focus on the fact that it’s supposed to be fun. My best advice is to have fun, stay positive and listen to your crew. A lot of times I see anglers get discouraged when they miss a fish, not realizing that this discouragement temporarily takes them out of the game for the next bite. By keeping a positive attitude and brushing off a missed fish, you’re sure to be ready for the next one.
