Went out this morning. I was all fired up with my new Moes Tackle deadstick baits and 3 weeks of vacation to chase. learn and find these fish. I left the house at 8 this morning after dropping the kiddo off at school. Headed out to Bridgeport and was ready for a day of fishing and hopefully catching. That's where it all went south.
I such at finding these fish. Doesn't seem to matter the season. I'm just not that good of a fisherman. So, I need some advice. If Bridgeport is your home lake, I am not asking for your secret spot. Just need some help analyzing the areas I chose and where I went wrong and where I should have looked. If you pros have navionics and can pull up the lake and give me an idea of where to start and why you chose that location, that would be awesome. Again, not looking for your spots.
So, below is a map of the lake and the spots I searched. I was on the lake for 5 hours and went through a tank of gas. The Lowrance Elite just never showed me any fish really. I am doing something really wrong. Through it all I found a few fish here and there. Got bit/tapped twice and missed both.
Here is detail of each area. I was trying to search the flats in 20-30 foot of water. I studied the lake map the last few days and these are the areas I chose. None really held any fish.
What am I doing wrong? Was i in the complete wrong areas? Just a crappy day of fishing?
