Obstacles, or challenges, whatever you like to call it, can and will show up in many different forms and if you allow it, can cause mayhem when it comes to Bass Fishing. Your mind is by far the biggest, hardest, and for most anglers the most complicated to control. Although, at the same time it is the greatest tool we have in the boat. We often let game and smack talk get in and play tricks on our own game plan. Over the last three years fishing in the LBAA full time as a Co-Angler I have seen and faced my share of challenges. As if the sport of Bass Fishing is not stressful enough, you add things like sponsors, family, and friends who are supporting you and expecting you to perform and be a winner. It is often hard for me to have a clear mind and a positive attitude, both of which are extremely important to be successful. As a Co-Angler so many things are out of our control. I have come up with a list just to remind myself not to sweat the small stuff come tournament time.
