I usually just tried to hit spots I thought would hold fish. I’ve had very limited success… hence the “KING OF SKUNKS”.

What were the two of the most important things that you were hoping to learn from the kayak fishing class and why were they important to you?

The first was a better understanding of lure presentation. I think I would actually scare the fish with the way I presented the lures to them. Also I wanted to gain knowledge on how to pattern fish. I would just fish one way. If it works great if not I didn’t catch any fish.
