Stumped for sure

Don't compare your success to others.  Every body has skunk days.  The most important thing is to make sure you are having fun.  Over time you will become a more skilled angler, enjoy yourself while you are learning, and before you know it, other anglers will be wondering how you do it.  If it wasn't for slow days, there would be no good days.  Have fun and try to learn something from both.

I’m not having fun catching nothing or even no bites at all with any lure or set up, and l tried a bunch.
 

The only success they have with mediocre fish and move from creek to lake and back to the same old places and are only concerned about catching whatever they catch. Biggest challenge for me is living in an area that’s limited. I have to travel at least a half an hour to 45 minutes or an hour, but even then it’s questionable. I have a lake that’s pretty huge l went to yesterday and saw grass along the bank, it looks promising but ?‍♂️. I need a kayak.

He's fishing across the border in MN! 

 

He has been to all the dams in and around fergus falls minn which controll the ottertail river. Thats how I discovered all the dams in fergus falls was first from his smallmouth videos.

Then i googled dams on the ottertail in fergus falls area and found a tourist brouchere about all the great canoeing and fishing on the ottertail river trail. I went to google maps and took the gps cordinates of all the dams and the gps did the rest.

He will mention if he didn't, and to catch a huge musky for the day at the first cast, would be enough for me !

Don’t ever trust guys who post musky videos ?? Most are guides or have a direct connection to them. It’s also probably their 4-5th day fishing for them that week and have a pattern on them. Your average weekend warrior fisherman isn’t crushing them constantly. Don’t compare yourself to these guys.
 

Watch informational videos. Cut the brands out they are promoting and just use the techniques. Sure the look what I caught videos are entertaining but, not practical.

 

The boat ramp talk is simply that. Listen to the guy who says they didn’t catch any. Chances are he did and doesn’t want the cat out of the bag. At the very least you can comb through his area instead of pound it. Listen to the guy who down plays his fishing.  The ones who come right out and give you a fishing report and how big/ many aren’t the ones to bother with.

 

Take three ways to fish and learn them till you catch fish. The sprinkle in more so you can expand in different situations if need be.

 

I have fished NJ a little bit and I can say I enjoyed it there my priorities have just changed.

Not following 

 

The videos l watched he doesn’t mention what body of water most of the time and if he does he doesn’t mention where exactly he’s positioned.
