    Practice and practice it can be harder than you think especially with rod holders fish finders etc. Use a recreation lake at first. then try the surf zone on a freindly beach. then deep water with a mate. With a tide running,wind and waves you may not get back on before you are exhausted. Don’t wait for it to happen.
