Even when I fish every day it still doesn't feel like enough.

They are there.

 

And they know you are there.

 

They conspire against you.

 

Keep trying. As stated above, when football season arrives it is a new day in bass fishing as they get ready for winter.

I never get tired of fishing, although I do occasionally get tired when fishing.  It is amazing how rejuvenating a nap can be.

 

Right now, I am tired of the hot weather & sweating like a pig midday while fishing.  In a few months, I will grow tired of having to wear layered clothes just because the weather dips into the 40's.  But tired of fishing?  That does not compute.

I'm confused -- are you saying you're tired of fishing, or that the fish are tired of you?

I can definitely see it happening, honestly.  When I get bored of fishing I try to switch it up.  Maybe take the ultralight rod to a nearby creek or try to kayak a new small lake.  New water especially is always exciting for me.

Been there and figured out some of it. I fish the same small spots over and over. What bait is hot this year might not be hot next year. Of course time to change baits. I change baits, colors and presentations till I get action using crankbaits, etc.  if no action I go to brushogs, wacky rigged senko on a 24" Carolina rig. 

I throw a few different lures too like rapalas, bomber shallow cranks, Norman thin n, inline spinners, spinnerbaits, yum money minnows, topwater poppers, spooks, etc. I use the baitmate bass attractant. I switch to garlic flavor too at times when no action is happening. Another thing I notice is the water conditions can change as we go deeper. It could look clear or stained on top but as we go down it can get even more stained, darker. Don't be afraid to throw brighter, larger colored baits. Don't limit yourself stay motivated and focus on your presentations too.

I fish 5 or 6 days a week, and have for the last 40 years.  To me its a form of relaxation and enjoyment and always has been.  Regardless how tough the day is, when I make my first cast all that pressure disappears.   Put on a some ear buds, your favorite music, and focus on the line in the water.  Its the cheapest form of therapy you could ever find.  When it stops being fun, stop doing it.  It should not be like work, and when it starts feeling like work, take a break!!!!!

I've been satiated after a nice trip with consecutive days of successful fishing, but I think I could pretty much live on a lake and never feel fished out.

I get tired of fishing on occasion. Sometimes a few weeks break is all I need other times I need a few months. Got out of it for about a year once and sold all my gear. I'll never sell my stuff again.

I don't think I've ever been fishing where I wasn't thinking about my next trip on the drive home.

Certainly, especially if I had the chance to fish a few consecutive days. But it only lasts for about 5 minutes, lol.

Usually for me it's laziness. If im betting done with work early, im like alright I'll go fishing for a lil bit. Then I get home and sit down... I'm done. Or I don't feel like driving to the lake. And i kno its stupid for me to say that.

That's why I need a lake house...?

I never, never, never, never get tired of fishing! I only take breaks from it out of need not want. That's because my girlfriend needs me to do something or whatever. Otherwise I could fish all day everyday!

That's possible? For the most part, I only get out on weekends and I wish it was like 4-5 days a week instead! Fishing is relaxing.

Yeah, I'm more "summered out" than "fished out."
