After my first tournament I realized I have alot to learn. I personally think I won this tournament purely on luck. I'm not saying skill has nothing to do with it, I'm just saying in this circumstance, luck made a difference.

I was real sloppy when it came to my casts and I was hanging up alot. Being left handed and fishing with someone who is right handed didn't make things easier. Towards the end of the fishing time I thought I had lost; in most situations this would of been the case. When I got to the weigh-in I got a great surprise. At that first moment I thought " man If I'm good enough to win my first tournament then I'm good enough to fish bigger tournaments".

The more I've thought about, the more I've realize that I'm extremely far from being experienced enough to fish big tournaments. The reason I put this in the resumes section is because, many people want to go right into these big tournaments and automatically want sponsors. You just can't do that. You have to prove yourself; not just to others but mainly to yourself. If I had won with a 5 fish limit and every other non boater had a 5 fish limit and didn't make any mistakes then that would of said something different but that is not what happened.

It's like luck is the rabbit in the race; it may get you close to the end fast but it may not be able to help you complete what you are after. Skill is like the turtle; it may take along time but if you do it right, you will achieve what you want.

Hope this make since to whoever reads this.

Good analogy!
