The fish brutally humbled me today

Recommended Posts

I knew it was a streak that would have to end eventually. I've enjoyed several straight weeks of very good fishing, even in conditions that I typically have difficulty with. 

 

Today however was a crushing day. The fish laid me the smackdown. I had a somewhat limited time to fish, about 3 hours. We had bluebird skies, a south wind, stained water, and temps in the mid-70's. 

 

Two fish in 3 hours.....and one was a bluegill. I gave it all the techniques, colors, depths, presentations, and variance I could think of. Not even my tried and true Ned Rig could fool them. They just had lockjaw all evening. 

 

I left feeling defeated, but I suppose this is part of it - that's why it's called "fishing"

My cousin's husband is in Minnesota right now.  Bluebird skies there, also.  He texted me that they, too, have been struggling because of it.  You're not the Lone Ranger-if that helps.

Just got back from Wisconsin where the air temps were in the high 80's and water temps were 81-85 which is very abnormal.  It was a tough week on the water!!
