It's always a challenge for me on what to throw in the Fall when the fish are feeding and there are shad everywhere. I've had a few times where I am back in a cove and bait is flickering everywhere and bass are busting on them, but I can't get a bite. It's like sometimes there is too much bait and nothing works. Still better than not having any idea where they are, but that line about the fish yawning and getting a mouthful made me think of some of those days.
