Competition! That feeling of purpose and the need to sharpen your skills and improve your focus. Thats why we fish tournaments. Why do you? Why should you fish tournaments? For some it's hanging with the guys and talking strategy. For others it's a way of making a living. Maybe you enjoy the tension before the takeoff or walking up to collect a check? Whatever motivates you, there is no better feeling then tournament fishing.
It's early spring and the Walleye are roaming the open basin of your local lake/reservoir. You see marks on your graph and the fish are close to the bottom or belly to the bottom. Using in-line weights or other snap weights is too aggressive for early spring and you need a weight system to deliver your crank bait to the bottom. Leadcore is a versitile easy way to troll for those early spring Walleye. Once you start to master using leadcore, you can use leadcore to deliver crawler harnesses over submerged trees and brush or use leadcore to follow the rolling contours of a shore line. This weeks podcast covers getting you started using leadcore and some of the applications for trolling leadcore.
This weeks podcast begins the conversation surrounding sent. How big a factor is scent when targeting particular species of fish? Are fish attractant products all they are cracked up to be?

Is the mighty Mississippi River the boundry between using gold or silver and do our Canadian fishing friends to the north have different go to colors? A very interesting conversation and a must listen before this years tournament circut or before you start restocking for open water.
