Two different perspectives.
More practice https://majorleaguefishing.com/bass-pro-tour/4-to-8-the-series-featuring-justin-lucas/
Less practice https://youtu.be/Pjlgj9p4ugw
I personally don't think it helps to practice more because conditions change so drastically.

Does working harder make you a better angler?

If more practice dont make you a better angler then you simply aint paying attention. Even if you dont catch a single fish, just the time on the water should teach you something about the body of water you are on.

Time on the water makes you better. Call it whatever you want

So you don't need any practice adapting to changing conditions? Hmmmm

Leave you rods at home one day and just graph and move around looking at different areas than you normally fish.

Practice will help you to learn what is and what is not happening.
Practice will help you learn to cast better
Practice will help you develop how to fish the lures you are using.
Practice will teach you that if you do not succeed at first you will learn how to.
Practice is the time you can form a game plan for the next adventure on the water.
NOT having any practice will only result in you never becoming a better angler.

Practice helped me to almost eliminate backlashes. Knock on wood.

The thing with practice is you have to learn from it and not just spin your wheels.

In my opinion, practice might make you “better”; but that doesn’t mean you’ll catch more fish. We all know a guy that can show up with hardly any practice and whoop us.

May not now but there was a time when that did spend time on the water.

More practice gives you more confidence, so I guess that is better!


Just one more cast!

Practice usually tells me what I should not be doing.

I think any time on the water, practice or otherwise, makes you better but that doesn't mean that you're going to do better in that weekend's tournament from practicing more. It's really easy to get hung up on what worked during practice and not adjusting to the conditions/situation on tournament day.
