Holding Yourself Back

Holding Yourself Back

The best natural fisherman I know is someone who can throw the wrong lure in the wrong place at the wrong time, occasionally on the wrong tackle, and still catch a fish better than any of the ones in your livewell. You work down a grass line with him in the back of the boat and he throws away from the grass into open space and catches a kicker. You’re fishing thick brush with big fish and he throws in a 10 inch worm on a 1/0 hook with 10 lb. line and effortlessly hooks and lands a 5-pounder. I’ve seen it time and time again and while it remains amazing it’s no longer surprising.
