Here is another tip from Shad about his trip to the FLW Cup. 


With 2 weeks of pre practice left I am becoming mentally prepared for all weather conditions.   I will take to the water next Monday for a few days.  During pre practice I will not allow myself to settle in to any patterns or fishing locations but familiarize myself with the lake.  This will allow me to adjust better each day and hour of the tournament, and utilize the 3 official practice days more efficiently.  The harder you work the luckier you get!!!   Time to go to work!
