17. What question do you get asked most by your fans, and how do you answer it?
The question is "How do you get to be a pro angler?" and I always tell them they should join a club and fish as a non-boater or co-angler for a while — or come be a Marshal at an Elite event and watch what these guys do. Use your tournament money to create a learning experience, and don't compare yourself to other anglers. In the beginning, you're there to learn not to win money. As you see yourself progressing, move to the front of the boat and get more tournament experience.
