Joe I've tried that a few times without using electronics. I try to see in my mind what I am casting to and the layout of the tree or whatever. It just doesn't last my mind wanders to much. Sometimes on a cast with a jig or worm I try to see everything the lure passes over and think how a bass would pick it up. I've never done it as the story describes beforehand of the actual day on the water. Good read though.

Most have come to know me by now.

If something can be overthought......well.....I will.

It's crazy for me.
The second I leave the water my mind starts on the replay.
What could I have done different?
What can I improve on?
Why did said lure work and WHY?
What did I fish well with and why?
On and On and ON.....

Then when I get home.......
What should I tie on for the next trip?
Should I change colors or actions?
Where or what structure should I target?
And which technique or lure should be best to start with?

Then if the technique is new to me or I think of changing something from the norm....THE DANG YOUTUBE GETS AN HOUR!

And ya....I go to sleep dreaming and imaging the actual casts AND THIER SUCCESS!!! Of what ever I was changing to the next day.

On the water......I guess I probably think alot and analyze the what, why,wheres but to be truthfull.
I'm simply just absorbed in the whole thing.
I TOO try and visulize the actual lures line of sight.
ESPECIALLY jigging, wieghted texas Rigging with creatures and even worms.
Then I try and see it though the fishes eyes.

Then my mind WONDERS!
Sometimes I find my self casting and my minds on that muskrat or turtle or the color of the trees they just swam by.

I actually use a similar system to Brandon to over come fears and new situations in life.
Life and fishing are so much better handled with confidence, thought and practice...for me anyways.

TOSS IN A GOOD JOKE....AND MY DAY IS COMPLETE!!!!


Sadly, you know I'm going to attempt the Brandon Technique because the young man flat out lives to fish!
Can't believe all the fish he posts off season.
