A new season is upon us. It’s TIME to continue BUILDING on the SUCCESS as individual anglers, Boat Teams, & the Frederick County BASS Team as a whole. Success does not happen by mistake. It is a result of hard work, dedication, commitment, and the right attitude to be the Best you can possibly be. It’s unlikely you will find success by simply showing up and fishing on the day of the qualifier. What are you doing between now and then to prepare yourself for the competition?
Inspect your rods, reels, line. Respool line if it is old. Inspect your lures, hooks, sinkers. Take an inventory.
Research topo maps, google map images, Navionics to find features that fit your style of fishing & the late summer/fall patterns.
Youtube Lake Gaston fishing for tips. What areas, lures, & presentations are working in September?
For some it may be practice casting, pitching, flipping, skipping on the water or in the back yard or garage.
Time Management with school work (get started off on the right foot), sports, chores (listen to your parents!), and personal time.
Thank you Ricky Fulk for sharing your wisdom with us!
The Richmond Fishing Expo has the largest array of tackle, combined with some of the finest professional talent around, offering a weekend of fishing “OVERLOAD”.
State Championships will be April 29/30, 2023 at Lake Gaston. Seniors qualify by finishing in the top 6 of any qualifier. Juniors qualify by catching 3 fish in one tournament. If you have qualified at this point, consider booking lodging ASAP.
