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.

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

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.

Hawk Talk - 2012 BASS Northern Open Cayuga Lake

September 11, 2012

It’s always a challenge preparing for a tournament on a body of water I’ve never seen, so I did more pre-tournament homework for the August BASS Northern Open on Cayuga Lake than I would for a venue I’ve been to before.  I also had some extra motivation (not that I needed any) since I was sitting in 10th place overall and had an opportunity to qualify for the 2013 Elite Series.  I searched the internet, studied Google Earth and Bing maps (I always look at both, because you can get different views on each) and gave myself seven practice days before the tournament started.

It doesn’t matter if the brand new spinnerbaits you’ve just purchased didn’t come with a closed eye.  It really doesn’t matter that much even if you, like me, would prefer that they did have.

Don’t sweat it.  It’s a problem you can remedy in less time than it takes to talk about it.
