Traveling With Tackle, pt. 1

I expect I’m one of the luckiest guys to have ever had the good fortune to get his hands on a fishing rod.

One of the reasons I say that is because I’ve had the opportunity over many, many years of earning a living doing something I love---fishing and writing about it.

I wrote my first fishing columns for a daily newspaper in 1946.  It happened right after I’d returned from serving almost two years in an infantry rifle company in the jungles of the South Pacific during World War 11. I’ve been at it to one degree or another ever since.

Between that time and now I’ve made countless fishing trips all over the United States and on numerous occasions to the distant waters of foreign countries.  Most of those trips have been by air.

I don't know about you guys, but where I'm from, there's a word for guys who continually fish the local derbies - religiously at times - and never win. Often times they place pretty low to the bottom of the barrel but something keeps them coming back over and over for more punishement from the more "elite" anglers on the trail. Folks in my area call those guys "donaters". Not sure, but I'm guessing this isn't really news to you, though you may have another term for the sorry sucker.

Beatin' the Bank with Bernie Schultz - BASS Elite Series Green Bay Challenge

E-mail Print PDF

September 12, 2012

Rolling into Green Bay, Wisconsin, my mind was set on making back-to-back money finishes. This event would cap a five-week road trip and I wanted to return home with a lot more than just a bunch of miles on the odometer.

Prior to our arrival, BASS informed us that the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) had imposed a boundary—they claimed transporting fish beyond that line could prove detrimental to the fishery. Although several appeals were made, the DNR was dead set in their decision.

Tournament Change Ups - pt. 1

Everybody has a routine the night before a tournament. For some, it involves a certain meal and a good night’s sleep. For others, it is having a couple beverages and discussing their strategy with friends. For me, it is sitting in my boat for hours at a time organizing tackle and tying up rods. I do this mostly because I’m obsessive about tackle, but also because I’ve learned there are a few things you can do differently on tournament night that can greatly improve your odds on game day.

I’m talking about little things that you may do on tournament day that you generally don’t do while just fun fishing or practicing. Maybe you don’t do them because they are a little wasteful, take too long, or are just a pain in the butt, but you make sure to have those things all taken care of once your number is called to blast-off.
