Imagine you’re fishing in your first tournament…

You’re a little nervous, but mostly excited…

You’re fishing against guys you look up to…

And to top it off, there are thunderstorms all around.

But then you win FIRST PLACE!

Can you imagine how that would feel?

Well, that’s exactly what happened to today’s guest, Kalon Johnson, aka the Redfish Assassin.

He’s a redfish tournament angler from Louisiana and he hasn’t slowed down since winning his first tournament.

In this episode, he’s sharing tons of his secrets, including:

  • Why he prefers artificial lures over live bait
  • His favorite lures to use in each season (and why they’re effective)
  • How long he stays in a spot if he’s not getting bites
  • The difference between fishing spots vs. fishing trends
  • Why having a network is important (and what to ask them…hint: it’s not asking for their spots!)

In case you were wondering how he did in his most recent tournament, he took 2nd place!
