I went to little elm for 3 hour fishing. This time, I used perch cut bait instead of live ones. all other parks seem to be closed, so i had no choice but to hit the spot i know i have access to. I had three bites, but unable to hook any of them. i heard split second line screaming, then stopped. What do i need to do at this point? leave it(which i did)? well... no more further hit after that... but, when i reeled in bait still there. I am using circle hook btw. Do you think my hook is too big? I am a bit confused.
I noticed most of the parks close around 9pm, so how do you do night fishing afterward?
I think i am done for this summer as it seems it won't be easy for bank fisher men. I will target for fall/winter fishing though.
