Very important practices to remember, I need to hear them over and over. Through your education over the years, I’ve gotten pretty good at finding the 10% zone. it’s getting the fish to bite after I find them, is at times impossible.

Hey Luke and Joe great podcast, thank you! Yep, been trying to improve on all these areas, but still have soooo much to learn! It’s been great to have the Salt Strong “Fishing College” at our fingertips. As someone from the SF Bay Area, I take what I can from all the info that’s here knowing that a lot of this will apply to most predatory fish anywhere.

As you guys mentioned, networking is probably one of the most helpful parts of the puzzle. I hope that someday we’ll see more of this coming from the West Coast in the form of additional members and perhaps Coaches too! 😉 🤞 Thanks again!

Confession time…I’m ridiculously hard headed about changing my jig-head weight and ALWAYS need to stop at the “redfish dock”. And then there’s also that “trout dock”🤔.
