Shut Out

Recommended Posts

Man... For the first time in a long time I got shut out today.  

I feel defeated.  Whooped.  Violated.  

The worst part is, I fished from 6 am to 4 pm.  I tried everything too.  Shallow, deep, crank baits, jerk baits, spinner baits, top water, flukes, senkos, t-rigs, c-rigs, under docks, over road beds, in tree tops, around bridges.  I tried natural colors, silvers, golds, forage, chartreuse, firetiger, black, etc, etc, etc....

Nothing.   :'(

Frustrating, no doubt.  I've been on the wrong end of many a shutout.  You had more patience than I do, i woulda packed it up by 10 or 11 and gone to get a sammich.  You'll kill em tomorrow

Unfortunaltly it has happened to me too. But as the old saying goes, a bad day of fishing is better then a good day at work.

The same thing happened to my brother and I out at Glen Springs in Munford, TN. There was so many boats out there I was not suprised.

I should have thrown some Aspirin or other pain reliever as I bet all the bass had a headache from all the rattling and banging of crankbaits and other baits!  :)

I know there is great fishing there so plan on going when less pressure is on the fish. Fun being out there though!

Just curious: What were conditions like? Weather trend, sky, and water.

air temp: 6 am- 65 degrees

             2 pm- 92 degrees

water temp: 79 degrees

sky: clear blue

wind: none

current: none

water color:  stained, not muddy

I'm wondering if the full moon may have been a big reason they weren't biting.  I met a guy at the boat ramp who was leaving as I got there (at 6 am).  He had caught 3 nice bass between 4:30 and 5:30 on a buzz bait in very shallow water (1-3 feet deep).
