We asked several pro anglers to tell us about the greatest fishing tips they know. Here are 12 video tips that might help you become a better angler.

With virtually no exception, at some point every fisherman has been exactly where you are right now with your angling abilities — whether that be a novice or near-expert.

Even pro anglers remember what it was like to not be able to catch fish consistently.

How'd pros like anglers of the year Brandon Palniuk (Bassmaster) and Robert Blosser (National Walleye Tour) get to such heights in their fishing careers? They practiced, asked questions and implemented some great tips they learned along the way.

Anglers of all skill levels are looking for an edge on the water and will listen to almost any tip or suggestion if it means catching more fish, so Game & Fish asked some of the best professional anglers in the world for the best fishing tips they've ever received or shared.

Here are 12 of those answers.
