When.. don't know yet, hunting season starts Sept 1 and most of us are four season outdoorsmen and women, although I love fishing when every body goes hunting I'll do several so we can get everyone one in. You post up where you'd like to have one and help me start thinking about where specifically we can hold these.... like an empty softball feild in San Antonio that's centrally located. I might do one on the water as well, will be trying to make it where as many people as possible can come.
You guys start posting up where you want them to happen and I'll make it happen. Probably need about 25-30 people for it to happen in each location.
Casting distance can increase your catch by covering more water from a specific spot. It allows you to reach out to deeper water, hit an isolated grass patch from where you are while you're further away from that spot and that keeps spooking fish to a minimum. Mid range and larger trout can be really spooky in waste deep water, dinks - not so much. It also gives you the opportunity to reach to that red that you just saw blowup in the grass just passed your normal range.
Casting accuracy is very important as well.. which one is more important is more a factor of where you are fishing and what type of structure you are fishing. If you're fishing potholes, sight-casting, or trying to hit small isolated grass patches then accuracy is more important. If you are wading a drop off or in your kayak fishing over a large scattered shell flat then casting distance becomes more important. You don't have to cast 45 yards to be effective. That's a super long cast with an inshore bait-caster.. possibly 60yards is tops with a 20 mph wind at your back. But what ever you're level is getting a little more will help you become more confident and actually help your accuracy as well. I think I can increase each persons cast distance probably 10-20 yards, also reduce your backlash occurrences, and make you more accurate as well.
I'll be unavailable Oct 1 - mid November due to seasonal allergies and traveling.. but outside of that we can probably schedule something. I'm thinking of doing these free but with some deposit like $25. I'm not driving 3 hours to have a bunch of no- shows.. but I can refund deposits to those that do show; so it will be free for those that show up. I would say it may be close to 1 hour to up to 2 hours long. somewhere for lunch after and talk fishing then. Maybe go You can bring any brand and model reel / rod you like. I'll bring my Lews, but I'll cover adjusting all the brands so you can get the most out of them.
So let me know where you want them and throw up any other ideas you have, I'm totally open.
