Are you ready to make the jump to fishing competitively? The best and most common way to become a tournament angler is to join a local club. Most clubs offer a 6-12 day tournament schedule throughout the year that are fairly inexpensive to fish. A lot of club tournament are held as team events to help minimize cost and to teach anglers that have less experience. Most guys fishing in a club are willing to share information and help each other grow as anglers and competitive fishermen. Don’t expect them to tell you how they are catching fish or where, but you can expect to be shown rods, reels, boating equipment, on occasion techniques, and most importantly what happens at each stage of the tournament process.
