Any tips for going pro?

Asked by: 2222 views , , , , ,

I’m seriously considering trying to become a pro bass fisherman – but I have no idea how to get started. Do you know how to get into the game?

If you love fishing and enjoy traveling, please consider leaving your fishy reply!

    I believe the best color for fishing sunglasses is amber. I use amber glasses for fly fishing, and they’re great for shallow saltwater flats and rocky trout streams and I use them for driving too.
    The amber color removes glare and enhances contrast so you can see the edges of objects like fish and rocks under water.

    Orange is good as well, especially in lower light conditions – like foggy weather and dawn/sunset. Orange glasses are not great for driving though.

    Why not start by joining a local club and entering tournaments. Even if you don’t have the right equipment or boat, you can start small, enter amateur competitions and go from there.

    From there, I would try find a good tournament circuit somewhere in your area that combines weight for the angler and co-angler. This way you get to experience the tournaments with a pro and can see how they go about their business. Watch them and soak up as much as you can.

    Local tournaments are basically the entry level of professional bass fishing, as pointed out above. However, there’s a lot more to consider, too.

    You’re going to have to make a big commitment — if you go in halfheartedly, you’re almost certain to fail. You need to build up your physical fitness to ensure that you can perform at top form in all kinds of weather and for long hours. You also need to realize that this is not just a hobby, it’s a full-time job.

    A very rewarding, enjoyable job, but a full-time commitment with a LOT of hard work nevertheless.
