It's about a 1/3rd through January and the temperatures have been bearable and the lakes are not froze over yet! Time to hit the tackle shows to help pass the winter. Last year I went to Bass fest at Susquehanna tackle, and this year we have Anglers Express close by!! This year I intend to make make myself more competitive in the tournament trail!!! It starts with a lot more pre-season scouting in areas I do not typically fish as well as getting a better understanding of the areas that I do fish frequently. I also need a better understanding of my hordes of tackle and use them to their fullest potential. One of my biggest downfalls is " going to catch fish" which usually has me repeating the same technique and using the same lures. This year especially before pre-spawn should be beneficial for me,to get a better understanding of the reservoirs and how the fish relate to different areas. Last year we did improve our weight total for the year due to some changes that we made last year. The best reservoir fisherman fish these tournaments and you have to be ready in every phase of the "game" to compete with these guys!! It starts Now!! Happy New Year to everyone and Good Luck!
