In 2015, the Ocala, Fla., pro won the Costa FLW Series Northern Division tournament on Lake Champlain en route to finishing third in the division’s Strike King Angler of the Year standings and qualifying for the Walmart FLW Tour.
This season, he followed up by winning his second Southeastern Division AOY title. The first came in 2008. And Browne currently sits in 17th place in the Walmart FLW Tour standings with two events remaining in the season.
What’s the catalyst for his recent success? It’s a mix of newfound confidence and shallow power-fishing skills. Browne shares an introspective look at his Costa FLW Series title run and the shallow-water system that he successfully employs nearly everywhere he goes.
FEELING MORE RELAXED
Sometimes, just having fun and feeling relaxed helps an angler to make the right decisions and find success on the water. It works for Browne.
“I really enjoy the Costa FLW Series because I don’t put as much pressure on myself,” says Browne. “I show up more relaxed because I’m familiar with the lakes, and we visit them at optimal times of the year. For example, we hit Okeechobee in January and Santee Cooper in the spring. I’ve been to many of the lakes, know what to look for and can find fish shallow, which suits my style.”
In addition to his familiarity and comfort with the venues, Browne appreciates the extended practice period that the FLW Series provides. There’s no off-limits period for FLW Series events, but Browne usually practices for four days, versus the maximum of three days allowed for FLW Tour events.
“That extra day really helps me to put patterns together and to look at spots a second time,” he says. “When practicing big bodies of water with limited time, you have to be very selective and focused on areas. With a fourth practice day, I can cover nearly all of the water I want to and dedicate my last day to expanding upon specific areas.”
Browne maintains a relaxed schedule while preparing for Series events as well. He doesn’t panic if he’s not the first one at the launch in the morning, nor if he pulls his boat out a couple of hours before dark. The extra rest helps him to maintain an open-mind and relaxed approach heading into tournament day.
