17. What question do you get asked most by your fans, and how do you answer it?
They all ask, "How can I get sponsors?" I tell them that it's not about what a sponsor can do for you, but what you can do for the sponsor. You have to help a sponsor sell product —baits, boats, rods, reels —or you're of no use to them. You have to be ready to make appearances and work with the media. It's also important not to "shop" sponsors. If you go around looking for free baits here and there, you'll wind up with a bunch of logos on your jersey but no money. Baits don't feed your family or put gas in the tank.
