Hey Guys,
Very good articles. Brings back memories of my tournament attempts.
I like his four step approach to competing,...

1) recon and pre-plan, (pre fish?)
2) application
3) adjust
4) re-apply

I would only add....

5) re-adjust
6) re-apply
Ad Infinitum!!.... Hee HEE!

I like how they applied good tournament technique and only fished the "one rod, one mind", approach. Key, to fishing small areas. This is a tough concept for most fisherman to get their head around, but it works well.
The four locations he spoke of as key fish positions lacked only one point, and I feel that it is THE key point when fishing a tidally influenced area,... WHEN TO FISH THOSE LOCATIONS!!!
Also, an assumption that I think a lot of Bay fisherman make, which I feel limits their opportunities, is that the shallow protruding structure is the primary strike zone. (docks, rocks, and cans,) I have always put more emphasis on the larger channel bottom breaks. The shallow, or vertical stuff is where they live,.. the deeper channel breaks are where they go to eat! More fish, bigger fish, and ready biters! Timing is key!

I dont know what the rules are on that but I only do it once in while and only on good articles like this one.

Getting banned through a pm because you recommended another site is just lame. I guess that forum isnt all that great to begain with lol!

Last point was a good one. My current feelings about finding fish is the ability to cover water effectively. In a tube it is much slower and over all not very effective. This is why I feel keeping notes after each trip is important and really paying attention to the area you are fishing. I have gone out just for recon purposes with the attitude that if I catch fish great but if I am going to get skunked at least I want to put some real estate under my tube. Note the area and what it offers for later. I know there are guys that fish a spot because it produces but not really know why and there fore when it fails to produce, they are at a loss to duplicate the conditions elsewhere.

Hey Waxon,...

Yup! Tubes are slow but sure. Want to cover more area and step up your game?

TOONS!!!!

Hee Hee Hee,....

But seriously, one of the main reasons I stepped up to a toon way back when, was to cover more water and expand the range and effectiveness of my time. Also toons are superb recon vehicles. You and your toon and a good meter can really, effectively, recon your water and reduce the amount of time wasted, fishing low percentage water. Also, ( and you guys have heard me say this many many times) I think toons are an excellent fishing platform, superior to tubes in many many ways.

bodfish

PS I realize that there are many reasons why anyone chooses to tube or toon. But I firmly believe that if you are serious about stepping up your game, You need to sit a little higher in the water Hee Hee

Hmmmm...my choice to cover more real estate just became a yak. I see your point about height above water...but I'm thinking there are some yakers might argue that point. Personally I have to lean in your direction until I discover for myself otherwise. I just don't have love for toon. Seems like a lot of set up and weight and "stuff" to do in preparation. But I admit, never been on one and I really don't have the right to comment on pontoons. Just observations I've made of tooners setting up and fishing.

Probably should move this discussion to another thread.
