Sometimes when I hit FPH there is just too much recreation traffic and the fish will get lockjaw. Like any true fisherman I fish on, but sometimes ya just have to say U.N.C.L.E. When that happens I break out my umbrella with the front chair mount on the bottom and tie a hammock from the center console to the trolling motor and chill to the waves while listening to some jams. Heres to a bad day catching but a great day at fishing.

Below is a friend who enjoyed a trip in the past rocking in the hammock waiting for a bite.

Relaxing on the water. Catching is nice but not needed all the time.


PB flathead 34.5 lbs - I know it's small but it was still the record for Lake Travis when I caught it!
PB Blue 58.5 lbs jugline 43.5 lbs on R&R which was the other Lake Travis record when caught.

I agree! Keep moving and some will be willing to play somewhere. I often look for the shallowest fish I can in those situations as the shallower fish tend to be the most active fish in general and most willing to play.

Wow, I'm impressed the trolling motor is holding the other end up. Great idea!


One 10-pounder is better than ten 1-pounders; but 100 1-pounders is ok too!

I was thinking the same thing. But, as for a bad day catching I start playing with electronics and trolling around looking for new spots to mark. Maybe toss a few at the spots as I keep on going by.
