Got Skunked

Recommended Posts

Took my buddy from work out today on my local lake.. From 8am-2:30pm only thing we caught was a tan. I couldn't find the bass.. I don't know why it was so difficult today.. Didn't see the bass shallow or on any of the drop off ledges that i usually always hook up a few fish at. Bummer day! I need to become

a better fisherman...

Anyone else having a hard time out on the lake?

It happens, this does not make you a bad angler, just an angler that had a bad day.

I wouldn't worry about it... here in the Midwest we have seen temps fluctuating from as high as 85 one day to 35 a day and half later. Haven't fished as much this year as I have in years past due to other obligations. The outings I have had this year have been pretty poor by a 'typical' years spring fishing in comparison. Last year I was getting frog fish already and this year water temps are still in the high 40s. Most of the local anglers are struggling with hit or miss days and typically most are getting a few fish.

Stick with it. As temps warm and stabilize so will the fishing.

Same thing is going on around here. The bass are on their beds and the only way they're biting is if you drop the bait right on top of them.

Yeah I haven't even seen beds... It's horrible. I guess I'll just keep grinding it out.

Been pretty difficult here too. I did manage 1 bass at 14inches earlier today. At the pond yesterday there were a quite a few people fishing with no luck and some were even using bait. Like someone mentioned I think most are still on the beds.
