This is a big topic, here is my opinion on it… The biggest thing with sponsor is what you can do for them. When you go to a company the biggest thing they are looking for is why should we pick you? They want to know why you would be the one that would help promote there products. So you have to be able to show them what you are going to do for them. Any company is always wanting to make money and that’s what a sponsorship is apart of. You have to be willing to promote there product no matter what. Make sure you go after sponsors that have products that you believe in and use.

Yes, winning tournament will help you out a lot but it doesn’t guaranty that you will get sponsors. You have to be able to sell yourself to them and show them that you are a well known angler and that you will promote there products.

Getting a sponsor is a lot of work, you have to be committed to volunteering your time for all kinds of events. It can also be a lot of fun to!!! smile.gifcool.gif

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
