Aaron Martens: My Preseason Prep Is Madness
Pro fisherman Aaron Martens has documented his preseason prep for Bassmaster, whose 2016 tour begins March 4 with the GEICO Bassmaster Classic on Grand Lake O' the Cherokees in Oklahoma.
No matter how well I’ve used my time in the offseason, I never feel like I have enough hours in the day when it comes to this time of year. Every time I look at the clock, it seems like a whole day flashed by, but that’s always what it’s like in these final stages of preparing for the GEICO Bassmaster Classic and the Bassmaster Elite Series regular season.
You want to know what I’ve been doing for 12 hours a day for the last two weeks?
I’ve looked through every single compartment of every single box of tackle I plan to bring on the road this season. I’m also: hand tying my jig skirts; making my own shakey heads; hand tying my hair jigs; tying fluorocarbon keepers/bait-holders on all of my hooks – hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of them.
Good stuff. Read the whole post right here.
