Beginners Gear Survey
Beginner’s Gear Guide Survey: Help New Anglers get Started Right
With over 150,000 anglers a year that visit the Discover catfishing website, one of the biggest problems I have as a writer, is to continually come up with solid content that is interesting and engaging to anglers of all skill levels.
Some of our members want to read about the more advanced techniques such as target drifting ledges, while others just need some help deciding rod and reel combo is best suited for them or tackle considerations.
As I started to write about a beginners getting started guide, I began to think about a couple of problems with this article. Number One, this is the kind of subject that might put an experienced angler to sleep. And two, once I sat down and actually started writing I realized that trying to pick the perfect combination of tackle and equipment for the three species in different parts or regions of the country could be endless.
So I came up with an idea that would solve my problem, one which would allow all to participate. Actually creating better data for new anglers view and to make good decisions based on other anglers choices in the survey results.
GET EVERYONE INVOLVED.
One of the coolest things about the Discover Catfishing website community, is our angling diversity. We’ve got some great everyday catfishing anglers from around the country that target small ponds, rivers and creeks mixed in with some of the top Tournament Pro’s pros that travel the country competing for cash as well as guides who fish for a living.
This is the perfect opportunity for the experienced Discover catfishing anglers to lend a helping hand to the folks that are still getting their feet wet in the sport.
The topic is Help Us Build a Beginners gear List.
The idea is to keep it simple. Imagine that you had to start from scratch, and needed the basics to succeed.
