If you’re anything like us, you’ve watched hundreds of videos about how to find and catch fish. Fishing isn’t easy, and we’re always trying to put the odds in our favor.

Step #1 is finding the fish (location).
Step #2 is getting them to bite (presentation).
Step #3 is often overlooked. It’s getting the fish in the boat!

In the video above, Bryan explains how boat control can play a huge roll in maximizing your landing percentage. Enjoy!
