Stop bragging!! Most of us are flat out getting it in the bucket 1 out of 10!

Move further away from the bucket so you can improve over a greater distance.  At 30' you should be landing in a coffee cup 8 out of 10 times.

Well yes this might improve your casting but only to cast into a coffee but this is unrealastic, I'm not being negative at all I'm just saying to improve your cast you will have to practice casting in the environment that you fish in as there will be obstacles you have to cast over/avoid but I do often throw the od lure into a bucket when I'm not out on the water  :thumbsup

If you need casting practise your not fishing enough.

If your not getting hung up occasionally your not catching fish

I thought it was something about  dome reflections causing flaring on the lens.....   :thumbsup

Sorry couldn't resist  ::)

But yeah, I'm hopeless at casting at a fixed target, but when on the water I "just do it", forehand backhand, either hand, I usually hit in the general vicinity of the target spot (unless I'm tired). But put the pressure on and tell me to hit a bucket and I'd be lucky to get within 10 foot!

last time I respond to one of your posts, I believe your trolling...
