Bad day.

Recommended Posts

Got to the river at about 4pm today. Fished until 7:30pm. In that time, I caught NO fish. I did, however, loose both of my chatterbait lures, my best spinnerbait, one swimming jig, and one conventional jig. And 2 crankbaits. Kind of an expensive day with zero results. Gonna' have to save my pennies so I can stock up on lures again. Total bummer.....

How did you manage to lose lures without even getting any bites? Snags?

I was fishing a new section of river that I had never tried before. I found every snag and rock in the river, I think.  And I am far to stubborn (or stupid) to give up easily.

I lost 5 flies I tie to toothy over zealous pickerel that had bad aim and each one takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.  Three of them even bit through 20lb mono after I switched that to prevent bite offs...they had bad aim I guess.  It is part of the game.

Dang, that's a lot of hardware lost. Were you fishing from the bank or on the water? If on the water, might want to look into getting some kind of lure retrieval tool. 

Strickly from the bank. I hiked in to a new section of river and was totally unprepared for the number of snags there. If it had not been so much effort just to get there, I would have quit after loosing the chatterbaits....

The river overlords have accepted your sacrificial offerings and granted you permission to return to said waters again with promises of a more productive outing. So it is said; So shall it be!

As my mother used to say  "From your Mouth to Gods' ear".
