Favorite way to fish

Flipping  a Jig


Most exciting fishing experience

Muskie fishing , nothing like a big Muskie pulling drag  and  jumping.


How Mark preps for a tournament

I go over old records I have  keep.  Then I go over  paper maps, then google earth maps.   Also I  browse  the internet for old tournament on the body of water I m going to fish . I also check out u-tube   Then usually Prefish the weekend before and talk to other anglers at their weight ins.  Then on the day before  I usually  go around running my graph looking for under water structure and fish , making way points. But dont hook any fish that day.


Three favorite search baits

Spinnerbait, crankbait, jerkbait


Best tournament finish and what you did that day when you were fishing.

Most challenging part of tournament fishing

Knowing when to stay or run somewhere else


When tournaments don't go my way

I frist go and  congratulate the winner.  And see if he would like to share his winning ways .  I also  Listen to my  fellow anglers to see  what went right for them, and learn from my mistakes made that day. Remember if your not catching you should be learning!


Advice to give to an aspiring tournament angler:

Join a Bass club or 2. Then  fish as a non boater  &  fish with everyone.  Now  watch, listen, ask  question and learn!  You can learn all kinds of tips and Techiques.  plus and make alot of new friends
