How To Make 2018 Your Best Fishing Year Ever [VIDEO & PDF]


You can’t hit a target that you can’t see…

It’s a famous quote that is tough to argue with.

The chances of hitting a target that you can’t see are slim to none…

That means that in order to hit a goal or objective in life, you need to know what you are trying to accomplish.

Yet, why is it that most fishermen don’t have a target or goal in mind when it comes to their fishing?

Let me explain in the video below.

Note: I have a free PDF with the three questions you can download and print below this video.

The three questions (plus examples):

Q1: What is it you want to accomplish in 2018 when it comes to fishing? (MUST BE VERY SPECIFIC)


  • Catch an inshore slam
  • Catch my personal best __________ (insert fish name)
  • Catch my first _______________ (insert fish name)
  • Win money in a fishing tournament

Q2: WHY do you want to accomplish this?


  • I want to out-fish my friend
  • I don’t want to look bad in front of my family, co-workers, etc
  • I HATE getting skunked
  • I want to become a professional fisherman
  • To start winning money in tournaments
  • So you can quit your job and Fish full time
  • To be able to teach your kids and other youth how to fish

Q3: WHAT is holding you back, standing in your way, or preventing you from accomplishing this right now?


  • Not enough time to fish
  • Job gets in the way
  • Not enough of my friends fish
  • I don’t have a good mentor or coach
  • I started fishing late in life
  • I don’t own a boat

If you want something in life, you must know what the end goal is.

Moreover, you MUST write it down.

It doesn’t matter if the goal is money related, job-related, relationship related, or even fishing related.

It’s conclusive that all of the BEST in any field have specific goals they are trying to reach.

Of course, writing them down is half the battle…

The other half is TAKING ACTION.

No matter how many times you write your goals down, you’ll never get there unless you take frequent action (even if it means super small steps every week).

Regardless if you get help from us here at Salt Strong or not, I urge you to invest in yourself when it comes to fishing (like online fishing courses, joining fishing clubs, seminars, etc).

Your kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids will thank you one day because it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Any questions or additions?

Let me know in the comments.

I’d love to hear from you.

Fish On!

Never had any problems getting my questions answered. Salt Strong has not been around for 6 years. Shoot Joe or Luke a private message and they will point you in the right direction. Does the VtDave come from Vermont or perhaps Virginia tech? Try going to the saltstrong page on facebook and ask your question again. google” inshore fishing manifesto” That will get you headed in the right direction fishing wise. Hope this helps!

Oooh SMART goals!
S – Specific.
M – Measurable.
A – Attainable.
R – Relevant.
T – Time bound.

Use these kind of goals with my direct reports every single day.
The best and most efficient way to reach goals you set for yourself (or have set for you).
