It’s newsletter time!

Remember when you were a kid and around Christmas time people told you that giving a gift was better than receiving one?

If you’re like me, you were probably thinking there’s no way that giving anything is better than receiving a Game Boy on Christmas morning…

But of course that all changed when I started having kids!

Sure enough, the same principle applies to fishing.

When you first start out, all you want to do is catch fish, but as you get better, you start to really enjoy putting other people on fish.

That’s what Salt Strong is all about, and this week we have a story of a gentleman who was able to put his friends and family on some fish of a lifetime.

Scroll down to the Strong Angler Of The Week Section below for the story (his name is Greg Prevatt and he’s the one above with the beautiful red snapper).

And if you’re not quite at the level where you’re putting people on fish, but you want to be, you can fast-track your way there by joining the Insider Club.

We’ve also got some incredible, exclusive Insider tips, the public tips (including an excellent report from Luke), the Salt Strong Podcast, and some conservation tips below.

Alrighty, enjoy the newsletter Salt Strong Nation!

Congrats to Greg Prevatt on winning the Strong Angler Of The Week!

Greg did an excellent job exemplifying what Salt Strong is all about recently by using his fishing skills and putting friends and family on some nice cobia, red snapper and sharks.

He spent much of his days on the water tying hooks on and rigging bait, but for him, he got the most joy from seeing the enjoyment on his friends and family’s faces as they battled these big offshore fish.

Greg also credits much of his success to Red Snapper Mastery (free to Insiders), and Grouper Mastery, which you can get at the links below:

Need a murky water mastery course. Murky water fishing is very different than the clear water and grass flats that are shown most often.

Luke Simonds

We’ll be sure to add ore murky water fishing into the mix. But please know that it’s not as different as most people think. For example, this trip to St. Augustine had a good amount of fish catching from simply using the same general strategies, tactics, and lures that I was getting results with over in the clear waters of Tampa Bay during that time. And I had never fished that area before in my life and I had not fished from a kayak in over a year.

Greg and Cindy Batchelor

What a great testimony to Salt Strong, and what an awesome interview with Greg! Cudos………Being blessed, to be a blessing!
