    Hey Joe,
    For me I’m hitting the tourney trail hard this year with 3 in Wy. and 2 at Oahe. I’m a fan of your’s and a huge fan of walleye fishing. My question is, I have been debating on fishing a pro-am next year. What are your ideas on this? Is there alot to learn? How early does a guy sign up? Is it an overall good experience? Any details I should know before signing up?
    Thanks again Joe.

      I appreciate it Jer! Man I love Oahe, one of my favorites for sure!

      The biggest mistake I’ve made in tournament fishing is not taking advantage of pro-ams early on. I did lots of team events…still learned a ton, but learned the hard way. Watching some of these guys on tournament day would’ve shot my learning curve much higher and faster. Everyone learns differently, but I guarantee you’ll pick up enough at each event to make it worth your while. I’m assuming you want to fish the co-angler side, but if you’re planing on giving the boater side a shot, you can pretty much sign up as long as it’s a couple weeks prior to the event. AS a co-angler, it helps to contact a boater and sign up with them to ensure your entry. If you have any more questions, shoot me a message on FB and I’d be happy to help you get started.
