I am not an tournament angler. I do not think it is in my makeup, and I am a bit old to get started. That said, I have so much respect for tournament anglers, particularly an admiration for their mental toughness. When I noticed Lucas Bogosian on Instagram, I could tell this young man was a confident dedicated young professional angler. So I focused this interview on the mental game of professional fishing and specifically for Lucas, the mental game from the perspective of a 21 year old trying to move forward in his professional fishing career. So whether you want to make a career out of fishing or are like me and have a ton of respect for those who do, I am confident you will enjoy learning about what gives Lucas that mental competitive edge.

When you think of the best States and Provinces to go walleye fishing, I am guessing that you are like me and Vermont is not one of your first choices. Imagine my surprise when I ran across a guy from Vermont on Instagram with quality walleye pics. I immediately concluded Kyle Richardson was spending a lot of time crossing the border and going on fly-in trips to Canada’s best trophy walleye waters. Well, I evidently was wrong. This guy is catching these big walleye from 2 Vermont fisheries. And Kyle spends a lot of time filling us in on how to walleye fish The Green Mountain State. He also gives a great story about his most memorable catch. Read to the end to hear this amazing fish story.
I try to be very selective about who I pick for my interviews. I don’t just interview every angler. I only interview those who I believe, usually judging by their social media, will provide interesting reading for fans of Dock Talk 365. So, a few weeks ago, I did this amazing interview with Jeremy. At the end he mentioned his friend Elliot was a really interesting guy to talk to. I started checking out Elliot’s Instagram and realized that he fit right into the folks I interview here. As you will see, Jeremy was so right about his friend. Elliot gives us the breakdown on his perspectives about fishing. His personality and passion shine through his words. Here is what Elliot shared…
Normally, I try to write an introduction that will keep you reading. On this interview with Jeremy, just trust me. It is not your traditional fishing interview but you want to read it to the end. When we discussed doing this interview, you described your approach to fishing as non-traditional.
