Rudow’s Top Fishing Mistakes (That Most Anglers Make)


If you want to know the top mistakes that most anglers make (even the most experienced ones) then you’ve got to hear this.

Today on the podcast, I’ve got FishTalk Magazine’s Lenny Rudow.

Lenny has been fishing for a long time and he kicks off this episode with a great story about how his son was outfishing him because of one simple mistake he was making.

Once he fixed it, he started catching fish!

There are many simple things that anglers do on the water that could be the difference between getting skunked and having a great day, and Lenny talks a lot about what some of those mistakes are.

He also shares:

  • What the one chemical that’s proven to be a fish repellant is (the bad news is that you probably have it on your boat)
  • The 3 best lure colors (and what fish actually see under the water)
  • How to start a fishing magazine
  • How to catch cobia in the Mid-Atlantic
  • The state of the striped bass population and confusing regulations (this was a really interesting and inspiring conversation!)
  • And much more

Such an awesome guy to talk fishing with!

Here’s the biggest thing I took away from this conversation: if you want to catch fish, stick to the basics.

There are a small handful of lures and colors that work well — you don’t need a big ol’ tackle box with every lure under the sun.

Plus, by simplifying your tackle, you’ll be able to focus on what matters most: finding feeding fish.
