What is necessary preparation for a tournament?
A little background, I’ve only been freshwater fishing for a few months after years not fishing at all. I have a kayak and plan on getting a fish finder by springtime. I know the finder isn’t going to catch the fish for me so I have a ton of practice to do before actually entering a tournament.
My question is how competitive are kayak tournaments and what is the average skill level? I don’t expect to ever be a pro or anything but obviously winning something from time to time would be highly motivating. I don’t plan on doing any tournaments for a couple years probably until I’m confident I have enough experience to warrant spending the time and money.
I’m just curious if anyone could share their story with me so I could get an idea of what to expect.
EDIT: Thanks to everyone for all the information, so much great advice!
