What the heck was I thinking ???

Recommended Posts

I committed the cardinal sin today..... That is, I allowed myself to be sidetracked with the little ones :-( What's even dummer, is that I had a couple beautiful 13" to 14" Split Tails with me too ! I mean, don't get me wrong, I did soak one of them in 3 or 4 spots, for a total of 6 hours or so..... but I wasted the other 6 hours, trolling a 6" broken back P-line crankbait. Oh sure, I caught four Stripers from 5 to 9 lbs, and missed several more, but this method hardly ever produces the 40 plus fish that I really want !

I promise to fish nothing but Split Tails, all day, for the next two :-)

I'd rather fish the best choice for a monster, and get skunked, than to greatly reduce my odds at a big one, and end up with a handful of 5 to 15's......

Peace,

Fish

I won't believe it until I see pictures ;D

Just kidding. You might be disappointed, but it sounds like a great day on the water to me.

Good Luck,

Dan

I could really go for some 5-15's fish... as long as they are green with a black stripe :P. Sometimes numbers aren't so bad dude. Think about it. You could be like me and give up on the big bite for the day, only to get skunked drop shotting >:( It was a rough weekend.

Not so, at least not based on your actions today.

Don't get caught up in your own myth dude. Everybody knows that you are the premier big fish guru on BassResource.com.

It's Ok to just go out and catch a few "for the fun of it"

girlieman ;) ;D

Well hey Daniel, it's funny you should mention it..... I wasn't going to bother posting this.... but since you asked :-)

My excuse for trolling, early on, was that I might get a big Salmon.... but there are very few in here right now, and nobody is catching them anyway.

Bottom line is, I know what it takes..... but I just wimped out.....

Not today though ! :-)

Peace,

FC- The best way to get a bomber here is trolling. But Deep. 50+ ft, wire line. Ever give it a go?

PS- Does the water always have that "hue" of pew? :) We also have some good fish that come from very questionable water.

Hey LBH, I've never tried it.... and would be open to try anything... except, most of our Striper waters, besides a few small holes, is only about 25 ft deep.

Yea' our slough water is almost always murky rotten, green / brown.... But it doesn't bother me, like it does in lakes, when I'm after the big mouthed trout-eaters. Only one time last year, was it a nice, clearish green, with maybe a 6 ft vis...... And I didn't catch anything ! :-)

Peace,

Fish
