Do you just chunk and grin? Go to technique? Give up and go home?

Well I never give up. I might "take 5" and re-evaluate what I'm doing. If I'm not using a confidence bait, I might switch over.

The hardest thing to do when fishing on a really slow day, is concentrate on making quality casts and presentations. Before I hang it up for the day, I force myself to make 20-25 casts with 100% concentration and focusing on the bait movement. Often, I will then start to catch some.


Eat. Sleep. Fish.

You will have days that you just can't get bit for whatever reason, but I never just give up and go hone. You never know just when a big bite might be your next cast and if you gave up and quit early, you may never get that special bite, the one you have been hoping for.

When Iím struggling I pull out the watermelon red why chartreuse tail and slow way down.


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways with a fishing rod in one hand, 10# LMB in the other, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and yelling "Wow! What a Ride!

I think of all the many techniques that I need (and want) to learn and have the tackle for...Then I give up, go home, and drink beer.

I never give up and go home although it's crossed my mind. I can't do it though and when I think it, the next thought is how dumb that would be. I move around and look for what I feel like is good water color, temp, bait, just whatever I think I need to look for at that time of year. Sometimes I find it after a few stops and sometimes it seems like I run all over the lake looking. I always remember one thing, somewhere on that lake at every minute of the day there are fish biting. You can wait them out at certain spots or you can go find new ones, either way can work. I don't have the patience to wait them out normally but I will go back to check again.
