I think a lot of anglers fail to realize the importance of an accurate cast. Simply firing your bait up to the grassline does not constitute an accurate cast. The angler who can find the subtleties in the edge of visible cover and locate that hole that is as the size of a soup can, then make a cast and get that bait to land softly in that area, is the angler who will catch the most fish.
I can’t tell you the number of times I have had people in my boat sitting in the back and blindly throwing baits at visible targets. Believe it or not, there is an art form to casting that takes time to develop. Sometimes, even hitting the “sweet spot” on a line of vegetation is not good enough. Getting it to the right spot, then having it land softly and fall straight down until it hits the bottom — that’s the cast that could produce your next fish.
