Fish stocking programs have most improved my fishing and on the opposite end spear fishing has been the most detrimental.

Hands down Livescope. Biggest game changer out there in my opinion.

If I had to say... I would say braided fishing line and terrova(really just the remote).

I probably spend 75% less time messing with braid(occasional loop, very occasionally a knot) then I did with mono(spun up, birds nest, abrasion, stretch, always messin with it).

Terrova allows me twice the casts I could make while steering the trolling motor.

Since I had no real mentor or friends that fished (my father dabbled in it) I turned to the In-Fisherman and Walleye Insider magazines and videos. I sucked as much knowledge as I possibly could and put it into practice on the water. My lack of time on the water has degenerated my skills to a noticeable degree. I still love it though!!!

The only real way to improve as an angler is to spend time on the water.

Well based on that declarative statement there are several liars on this thread.

I find time on the water with someone experienced and successful is a good way to start.

This is only true if you have a knowledge base to work from. You can spend 12 hours a day casting an F5 original rapala, “greatest lure ever invented!”, in 1-3’ of water and occasionally catch a fish. Or, you can learn a great many things about where fish are and when and ways to target them and implement that in your time on the water. Neither one is much good without the other.

Having a mentor to get you started can’t be beat. Flatten out that initial learning curve and you’re off tho the races. Outside of that, the combination of visual and spoken lessons available on the internet are hard to beat for the money.

I'm an avid reader so I always do my homework, but I'd say fishing with a variety of other people has helped me most. Learned lots from those who know more or different than I do, and have gotten valuable insight from seeing the mistakes made by those who know less, too.
