SKUNK!!!


Recommended Posts

First time in several years.  Rained hard and the water was very muddy.  Threw a jig to shallow docks and blowdowns.  I'll try again this week; the water has cleared up a bunch.

I've got a friend that said I skunked a few years ago. I told him that his vivid imagination was gonna get him in trouble one day.😆 It happens, more often in cold muddy water.

I got skunked Monday (except for a tiny shad I snagged).   That's the first time in my life I've been skunked at that lake.   (I've been skunked plenty at other lakes)   I caught 9 today at a different lake.  I'm going back to skunk lake tomorrow (last day of vacation) to try and redeem myself.

Fishing under  extreme conditions like significant muddy water is excusable , this once .

Can't believe it; I was skunked yesterday too.  I went to where the water was not nearly as muddy and not a bite.  Water temp was 50-51.  Saw lots of bait that I didn't see Monday.

Skunks are common this time of year, for me anyway.

Next time you fish in those conditions, throw tight to the bank.

I went for a few hours today and took a skunking. As expected. The weather's been unseasonably warm for January. Mid 40's today. Water was 34 - 36.5 with skim ice on large sections of the lake. Marked lots of big shad schools, but couldn't buy a bite. I won't bother again until March iceout, but it was nice to get out for a bit.

You guys are making me nervous. I'm going Sunday and already I think I smell something coming from my boat! I'll take a deep breath before I board I hope I can get it out!

I skunked out yesterday at the pond. Not too unusual as I think the fish are boycotting me again. If the sunken structure would boycott my lures that would be great.
