I know that a lot of folks that couldn't answer this, cause they feel that they have so many in each category. However, I want for each of you all to list your strongest and weakest skill.

For me, my strongest would be fishing jigs and T-rigged soft plastics. My weakest would be fishing the extremely clear, deep lakes that we have here in the mountains of North Georgia. From Carter's Lake, to Hartwell, and even Clark's Hill..........those lakes still make me scratch my head.

I'm sorry but I don't quite understand your question.  Do you want to know our weakness when it comes to types of water and just our strengths when it comes to lures????

Okay then,

Strength---  T-rig plastics, jigs, and topwater baits

Weakness--  Fishing really muddy waters. ( the color of hot chocolate)

There may be 3 to 4 times a year that our water down here will turn over, meaning that everything on the bottom comes to the top and what was on top goes to the bottom.  That too me is the hardest way to fish.  Well, fishing after a electrical storm is difficult too.

No, just in fishing in general. Could be the strongest or weakest strength in salt water or fresh water, or it could be for a certain species. Just overall.

hmm my weakness would probably be crankbaits for one. I need to fish them more often but rarely do. Im more comfortable fishing baits that I move with the rod rather than the reel. I think another weakness I have noticed over the last couple years is lowland tidal rivers, such as Cooper River in SC. I do ok on these type of rivers but feel I could be doing much better.

Strengths? My greatest strength is soft jerkbaits for sure. I'm proud to be one of the few who were fishing these types of baits before the rest of the world knew anything about them. (almost 2 decades ago) :)

My weakness has always been tidal waters but every year I get a week to work on this.

Weakness: Musky fishing. :-\ I just cant get into any decent ones. I've spent hours upon hours chasing them too on some of the best musky waters in Ontario. I am thinking of hiring a guide just to get out of the slump!

Strength: Poppers. I've been told by many people I fish with that they've never seen anyone work a popper as well as I do. (Don't mean to brag)

Strength = I'd have to say shallow water with soft plastics ( pitching mainly )

Weakness = Deep water fishing.

My strength is flipping a tube. Any any way you could possibly imagine. I have over100 different styles or colors.
My weakness is lipless crankbaits. Never had any luck therefore I have no confidence in them. I own 2.

Hey, Unknown, we gotta hook up sometime. I currently live on Allatoona, but drive to Carters Lake on a regular basis. That lake is probably more my style than any other I've been on. Deep water, tons of timber, clear, steep rocky banks- I've been spending WAY too much time on deep spotted bass lakes lately. Now my weakness is shallow water largemouth fishing, the way I first learned to fish. ???

Since I typically (98% of the time) fish lakes that I can walk around - I am usually at a loss when I have the opportunity to fish larger lakes and in a boat. My stregnth would be fishing smaller waters.

Interesting question since I'm a multi specie fisherman and fish both fresh and salt water. However bass fishing is my passion so lets stay there. Reading the posts it was revealing that the majority believe they are good jig fisherman. Not to back anyone into a corner, how many of you fish jigs horizontally, cast them and retrieve back verses pitching them into vertical falling presentations? My guess is very few cast jigs to a target like you would fish a Texas rigged plastic worm or a crank bait. Do any of you fish spider jigs or swim jigs? There are so many facets to each presentation that we can all learn to fish each technique better. One reply was he has fished soft plastics for over 20 years, lets see that would be 1986, seems like yesterday. I started fishing plastic "rubber" worms in 1955 and thats over 50 years and I'm still learning a few tricks each year. My weakness is flipping, not pitching but flipping because I do not own a 8 to 9" flipping rod. Everything else I'm efficient at and considered by some to be a good jig fisherman.
