Default oahe

can anyone tell me or give me some advice if this would be a good tournament for me to start my "professional career" at or would i be better off waiting till next year? i have some good experience at the local and regional level and fished as a "co" several times. ive never fished this body of water before and find myself intimidated by the thoughts of going up against quite a few big names. i really want to compete at a higher level and dont expect to win the tournament but would be very happy with finishing in the top half. any advice would be great!
thank you for your time.

Thumbs up "Never Be With Those Cold And Timid Souls"

By all means go for it! Sounds like you are ready.

This is the quote Juls posts when she replies. Good advice way back when and good advice today!

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."...Teddy Roosevelt

If you are going to fish as a pro next year jump in this one to get a good feel. That way you know what you will have to deal with on a full time basis. It is a fun body of water to fish and the tour will be back so start your notes now. Plus look at how many first time anglers do well.

To paraphrase an old song "if you got the money honey they got the time".

If you can afford it jump in and let er buck.

Don't forget your "slow death" rigs and lots and lots of crankbaits

Good Luck

Oahe would be a great place to start. The fishing has been so good it makes everyone look like a pro. You just need the right bites in the right order, anyone's ball game. Good luck to you if you decide to give it a go!

To bad 1900 eyes didn't tell us his name so we can watch his progress. For all I know he could be leading Tommy Scar by 2 lbs, wouldn't that be a dream come true. (does anyone know his name?)
