Scout the location
When entering into a tournament or just going off fishing you will want to scout the location where you plan to fish. Taking out a boat and seeing if you see fish jumping is a good start but greasing the wheels of the locals for info is even better. To find out what has been going on talk to some locals and see what they have done. Offer to buy a few beers and chat and learn a little about the waters. Then when it is time to go out use GPS to find those spots and stake your claim.
Variety of bait
When catching fish the bait is the key. Live bait, dead bait, fresh, old etc. all play a role in catching fish. Know what you are going to use and make sure it is in peek ripeness. You can’t catch anything if the fish don’t like what you’re offering.

Divide the winnings
If you do happen to win make sure you and your team knows what percentage of the prize money they will receive. There is no better motivator than money. Take care of your team and they will take care of you.
