In this episode we take a long look at confidence. Fishing confidence comes in many forms and it all equals more success. Confidence in your equipment, baits, knowledge of the lake and the species you are targeting make you a more consistent angler. What you do and how you fish may not be the same as other anglers, but if you have confidence in what you are doing you may get the same results. Another great concept episode of The Next Level.
Rigging your boat is highly personal. A bracket here and a rod holder there. It is all about personal feel and what you have seen others do. Due to popular requests we go into how we rig our boats now and how we have rigged old boats. We rig our boats to be efficient and and to store what we need. We like open space free of hazards and we use that to fish at night and in tough weather conditions. Lets talk rigging boats.
In this Next Bite we continue with the idea of making them bite. We have Josh's tournament teammates from the Wyoming Walleye Stampede as our guests. Steve and Brooks Tyser are a father/son team who have been fishing Walleye tournaments for years together and Brooks started the College Bass team at University of Wyoming. We all got together and discussed being aggressive with Walleye and how to make them bite. We talk about the similarities between Bass fishing and using those Bass tactics to catch more and bigger Walleye. A lot of fishing knowledge and experience between the five of us for this great Next Level episode.
As Walleye fishing and Walleye anglers continue to grow and expand their sometimes old school thought processes, more and more Walleye anglers are starting to resemble bass anglers. Multiple rods used to optimize the number of baits that hit the water in a given area. Aggressive shallow water tactics and less live bait produce more tournament wins then the traditional live bait presentations. In this episode we talk reaction strikes and what that means. How to go out and make them bite. We need to stop coaxing Walleyes to bite and we need to fish for active Walleyes that are actively feeding. This conversation gets carried over in tomorrows release of the Next Level where we are joined by Josh's tournament team mates Steve and Brooks Tyser and we continue to discuss reaction strikes!
