Mercury Pros: What I Wish I’d Known Before Turning Pro | Bass Angler Magazine

Top Mercury anglers reflect on the lessons they’ve learned – sometimes the hard way.

No bass angler can ever “know it all,” no matter how instinctive or experienced they are or how much they read about the subject matter. The best tournament performers are not just quick studies, but also lifelong learners, willing to fully embrace new information and new technologies.

That’s particularly important for aspiring pros or even weekend tournament anglers who want to be consistently competitive. If you’re aware of your angling weaknesses, you can work on overcoming them. Take a listen to what some of the top Mercury Pro Team members – anglers who’ve overcome the odds – wish they’d known when they were just starting out. It runs the gamut from life lessons to fishing info to even aspects of their education.
