Biggest Inshore Fishing Breakthroughs In 2020…
The beauty of fishing is that you’re always learning.
Whether you’re a newbie who’s just now learning how to cast, or an experienced angler who’s tackling a new spot, fishing always presents a new challenge.
And that’s why we love it.
Now, 2020 was an unexpected year, but the good news is that we got to do a lot of fishing and learn a lot of new things.
Some lessons were brand new, while some lessons had to be relearned.
In this podcast, I’ve got the Salt Strong Fishing Coaches with me sharing their biggest breakthroughs, lessons, new tackle, and “a-ha” moments from this past year.
