Interesting topic. I was also blessed to be introduced at a young age my dad loved fishing, but wasnent till my teens when my new uncle Wayne taught me to think like a fish when it reallly clicked, 36 now. I used to fish 100 days a year now I'm lucky to get 20-30 yet never stop learning. I do feel like our boat will out fish most others on most days, and dont think its dumb luck.
If your a newer fisherman I would focus learning on a few things. BAIT, Wind direction, and water temp. Also keep a journal write crap down. There are no coincidences.
I have a few water bodies I'vs fished over the years where I have struggled at first..Nipigon comes to mind. Struggle for a few days then you get one fish with a certain wind in a certain place . Then you get another... then you can replicate all over the lake and turn a 5-10 fish day into a 50 fish day. Another big thing I payatention to is cadance of my presentation. Lastly theres always "a spot" on "the spot"
I'm gonna go read some old notes tomorow to see what I've forgotten.
