Confidence will help you when it is 1 o’clock and you don’t have a fish in the live and you are still as sharp as you were the first cast of the day. Confidence tells you that you are still going to bring your limit in at the 3 o’clock weigh-in. This is difficult to master. It was only a few years ago that I finally mastered this approach. Since then I have won and placed high in tournaments that I didn’t have a fish at 1 o’clock and still came in with a limit. You never give up and you always fish every second of the event you are in.
