54 or Bust – New YouTube Video!

We all feel the need to catch the biggest fish possible. But when should you break out the bump board? Less often than you would think. We bump very few fish, and it feels great to just worry about catching a fish, without the worry of being judged over its size. The fear of not catching a ‘big” fish holds so many anglers back. The fear of being attacked on social media for not catching a monster, we have all felt that. Once you break free from the need to measure every fish, you’ll become more confident on the water.
