When Nobody's Biting

Recommended Posts

Nice shot of Pappy Van Winkle 20 year old Bourbon! Takes the edge off!

In fact, I didn't catch anything today and I'll pour one right now.

Nice Musky in the avatar, what was the length?

I still don't get steamed if I get skunked, I'd rather be out on the water than in the office so I'm happy either way. But a tall cold one helps to think about what I could have changed. :)

If I dont catch anything I get on the internet and find out why.

Whenever I get skunked, I always feel there was someway to catch them.

I'll watch some youtube vids to get the confidence going again.

If i get skunked i get home, smoke a bowl and read up about what I could have done wrong and what to do better next time.

I go home, kick the dogs, slap my wife around, and go on a three-day drinking binge. After all, it's their fault, not mine. :drinking-29:

That would be just about EVERY day from July through October in North Central Texas. The fishing around here will improve to 'generally sucks' by Fall.

I do get frustrated at times especially after multiple outings with minimal to no fish caught. most of the lakes i fish are heavily pressured. there are some brutes in them but you must put in lots of time and effor on the water.

what is very frustrating to me is when you think you have a pattern going and you return the next day with perfect conditions and don't get one bite!

I really don't need to blow off steam after a day of not catching fish. If the fish aren't biting, I can always find something else to do. Lite's too short to get steamed up over fishing.

Jackie had a question for you.

On a roadtrip, does Roadwarrior take the place of your wife or the dogs?

With 5 kids and the wife, the water is calming no matter what the catch is for the day, I rarely get upset anymore, unless everyone around me is catching fish and I'm not, then it's more of a "what the heck" or an injury to my pride....lol

One way to avoid getting skunked is to throw a line in with a soft bait on, I like to use a fire tail bass stopper 3 open hooks, I'll dead stick that while I cast out my spinner or crank, last few years when I'm not paying as much attention to that line, I'll get one on.

I love being out on the water so I never really get unhappy if I don't catch anything. It irks me a tad when the day before I KILL them, and then the next day they decide they are too good for what I'm throwing. I fish at Douglas lake here in TN, and the water levels are all over the place. One day it's up, one day it's down, and the next day it's waaaaay down. Makes fishing consistently tough.

When nobody´s biting ----> drink beer, enjoy the scenery, listen to the sounds of nature, be happy.

That´s why it´s called fishing and not called catching.

The older I get the less I care if I catch something.

I just think my worst day on the water is still better than my best day at work.
