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.
I recently learned that New Jersey fisherman David Snedeker is sponsored by Livingston Lures. I have been intrigued by this company for some time and took the opportunity to ask David about their baits as well as his tournament and New Jersey fishing. Read on to learn more about David and his fishing.
