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.
