Full Contact Fishing

Full contact fishing you ask? Could this be a new form of “extreme fishing requiring pads and a crash helmet? In a word, no.  However, for many it may be a style of fishing that is very unfamiliar, and in some cases may even seem foolish. The basis of full contact fishing lies in the fact that instead of fishing in and around cover and structure…you fish on it.  For all intents and purposes the cover becomes part of the overall presentation. Immediately one might assume this falls under the category of “fishing fad”, but the truth is; it has been a secret of many top pros for years.
