Sharing Knowledge
I’m a believer in the fact that the more a person understands the movement, patterns and habits of bass the easier it is to become a seasoned fisherman.

There is no doubt in my mind that knowledge is everything. It really doesn’t matter what you’re trying to accomplish; without the basic knowledge, it’s difficult to achieve. Skills for bass fishing come in many different forms and from many different sources.
With today’s internet at our fingertips it is certainly easier than it has ever been to acquire knowledge, but it still has its limits. Knowledge must come with experience, and experience comes with time on the water. As you improve your physical fishing skills you must also improve your mental skills. I believe to really become a great angler your mental improvement must lead the way three-fold over your physical improvement. The reason is simply that if you’re in the right place at the right time you will catch fish regardless of your physical ability.
Once you learn what a bite is and how to set the hook it pretty much hangs with you and improves easily over time. The bass, however, can move and change. By adapting to changes of weather, water temperature, wind, current and more, it’s difficult, so keeping up with the mental end of it is much more complicated and involved.
In order to gain a mental edge over someone else in life there are only a few ways to accomplish it, and one of them is empowering your mind with information; reading, watching fishing videos, asking questions, listening to the more experienced and formulating your own ideas based on gained knowledge or shared information.
Bass fishing is no different. If you want to be the best, get the best information, gain the best knowledge and work with the best, most experienced and dedicated to sharing their knowledge. It’s also important to remember that not all information is real or created equal. You must keep what works for you and plays into your style of fishing or life and use it to your advantage. Gaining knowledge and being a better fisherman work hand in hand. If you are astute enough to use it - to make it work for you, it will help you become a much better fisherman.
