Best Pro To Learn From

Recommended Posts

OK, so I already asked this question. But here it is, in it's own special place. If you had the chance to spend a week at the side of one professional angler, on the water, off the water, which one would you choose? My choice has been made clear in other posts, I would think, but if you haven't been reading along, I would choose Kevin Van Dam. He probably snores (that's just my luck).

Best to learn from?

Hmm..

1. Larry Nixon

2. Bill Dance

3. Roland Martin (it's been said by those who have fished with him that's he's a pretty decent guy on the water).

4. Hank Parker

Kevin Van Dam has said Lake St. Clair is his favorite lake. I would like to spend a week with him just to see how he would fish my lake and compare and it to my strategy.

I love cranks, and David Fritts is the master in my book.    

If Jigs was on the menu, then Denny is the master.

Spinner baits is a no brainer, KVD is the man.

Lite line applications, it would be pretty hard to go wrong with Aaron Martens.

Rick Clunn, no explanation needed, 4 classics!!!!!

If I had to choose, KVD for sure.

I dont think it would be bad spending a week in Cali with Crupi, Long, FC or one of the other BIG DOG specialists.

It would have to be Denny B or Rick Clunn.  They have so many years of knowledge that you could spend a month with them would barely scratch the surface.

1) Hands-Down, any member of the In-Fisherman crew (Al or Ron, Csanda, Stange, Petros ~)

2) Iaconelli & VanDam are both excellent tutors (two more Snowbirds)

3) Though Chad Brauer is not high in the standings, I find him highly informative.

(His dad's book, "Winning Tournament Tactics" is only so-so, ditto for Dance and Martin)

(I've never learned anything of substance from Parker, Houston or even Clunn)

I would choose Gerald Swindle. Reason being even though he hasn't really done much as far as wins or accomplishments compared to any of the guys ya'll are mentioning, he seems like a really cool guy to fish with and seems to understand the sport very well.

I would definitely pick Ike.  His enthusiasm is unmatched and I would fit well right along side him.

G-MAN? It would be physically impossible to flip a jig while rolling on the boat deck, esp the way your sides would be hurting.  ;D Clunn and Denny would be my 2nd and 3rd. Of course, given the chance I'd take any chance to learn from any of these guys, But KVD, Clunn, and Denny would top the list in that order.
