Ok not suck but I'm well below average. I've been at Lake Austin for a couple days now and had one bite, I caught him but still. I've used about everything I have and everything I know to do. Do I suck or sometimes the fish just don't bite?

I casted from twenty yards to 100. Had one good run this morning and pulled the hook, long story I screwed up. I moved lakes though and did pretty good.

During the winter months I remember going for days without a nibble at Emma Long Park.Usually October is a good month there. I think you hit a cold front passing through may have slowed the bite.I don't think Lake Austin is What it used to be especially for common carp and buffalo.It was amazing you caught a common carp without catching any grass carp.That one is a beauty!Also the summer floods may have washed some fish out of the lake cause they had all the gates open for weeks.
