We spend a lot of time preparing for our fishing trips. Reading through Florida Sportsman magazine, checking the FS Forum, listening to the local fishing radio shows to get the latest information are all great ways of improving your fishing.
Another critical part of the equation is having a good local tackle shop with the latest updates on what is happening in your area.
