Fishing Like the Pros: Skeet Reese

November 25, 2015

A wise person once said that variety is the spice of life.

According to professional angler and 2007 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Skeet Reese, variety and versatility is the spice of fishing. In fact, he says it’s the key to his success.

Every angler has done it. Sometime during the season, you have one of the best days of fishing in your life. Maybe you catch a 10-pound bass, maybe the walleye keep biting at a non-stop pace, or maybe you actually catch twobonefish in one morning. Either way, it’s an experience you want to recreate over and over again, so, quite naturally, you note where you were, what lure you were using, what time of day it was, and what the weather was like. You look at every little detail in an attempt to recreate the perfect fishing scenario.

According to Skeet, this can quickly lead to disappointment. The way he describes it, too many anglers fish for the past and not for the future. While you should always retry your successful lures and locations, don’t get stuck in a rut. You run the risk of narrowing your fishing variety, and therefore, your fishing success.

Instead, Skeet preaches the importance of versatility. Once a technique starts to cool off, he is quick to change things up. While he says his greatest strength is flipping and pitching, he’s not afraid to throw crankbaits, drag jigs across the bottom, or use jerk baits. Whatever he thinks will bring success in that moment, that’s what he likes to use.

About Skeet Reese

Skeet Reese comes from northern California, where he fished on Clear Lake, one of the most active bass lakes in the country. On his home lake, he was able to perfect his techniques and develop a wide variety of skills; skills that have helped him become one of the best anglers in the world.

If you still have doubts about the importance of versatility, just look at Reese’s resume. He has won 2007 Angler of the Year, won the 2009 Bassmaster Classic, and been a six-time Bassmaster Tournament Trail winner.

Skeet Reese’s Favorite Huk Performance Apparel

This shirt has all the top-quality features that anglers have come to expect, including poly-knit technology, an added mesh vent for moisture transport, and anti-microbial technology to keep the shirt from picking up any smells.
