Im just wondering if there are many of you people out there that are beginners and trying to teach youself to really fish for the first time? Hopefull your die hard and have a boat. Id like to hear your experiences, thoughts or techniques your are newly trying that have paid off or not. I remember a few years back when I was getting back into fishing and I started watching the tournaments and practicing in the back yard(pitchin jigs) and then going out on the water and saying I will catch one fish this way today. Then the search for info continues and hopefully things come togather a little and you end up on the bow of your boat yelling "I AM THE MAN!!!":lol:. I have to really admire die hard the die hard beginner.
