how do you do it

Recommended Posts

i seen fishing videos on youtube of people fishing. when they fish every cast they catch a fish, but when i go fishing i catch a fish mabey every hour. i just want to know how come its not the same, is it because i dont have a boat, or am i just not good at fishing? its starting to frustrate me.

and just to let you guys know, they way i fish is mostly using a 4 inch senko. and just casting it out there, letting it sink, pull the worm foward about a foot then letting it sink again.

thanks.

How much have you read on the subject of LMB and fishing for these fish? You may be fishing in an area that has little or no chance of yielding a LMB.

Spend several days/weeks reading the articles from http://www.bassresource.com/fish/bass_fishing_articles.html this site. They are exceptional and should steer you in the right direction.

Also, take into account that people post videos of themselves CATCHING fish, not just fishing. Same with the fishing shows. No one wants to see 30 mins of some guy casting and not catching a thing which at times happens to EVERYONE.  :)

What you don't see is the hours of not catching  ;)

location,location,location....Glenn knows where they are.Or should i say he's "Da Man".

I'm shore bound as well,depending on where i am I'll move spot from spot till i start getting bites.Another thing to consider is if you are fishing a spot that gets heavily pressured by other shore bound anglers,fishing can be even harder and more frustrating.

I probably hit up 30 different spots in a 3-4 hour time span.

Don't think just because your in a boat it is easy. They can be heck to pinpoint and get a bite for hours at times at night. You just have to keep on chunking at them and try to put yourself at any advantage you can.

Welcome to the wonderful world of editing. The hours they spend not catching are on the cutting room floor.

In real life even the best fishing spots sometimes run dry. I can visit my favorite spots and catch fish after fish all day long. A week later a change in water temp or weather can mean I might catch one if I am lucky.

I can't remember which fishing host it was, but he said sometimes it takes three days to make a half hour show. We all experience days when we catch fish on what seems like every cast, but those days are rare.

Like Shorehugger said, there is ALOT of editing in these programs.

There are times and places where catching a fish on every cast can happen, I 've lived them several times in Lake San Lorenzo in Tamaulipas when bass crash on shiners, anything you threw at them brought in a fish, it got unbuttoned ? no problem just keep reeling in and you hook another one.

But 99% of the time it don 't happen that way, you got to work sometimes very hard to get a bite.

There are three small lakes near my hometown about 30 min drive, a good day of fishing in them is if you are able to catch 3 or 4 bass.

Sometimes there are several days spent to locate fish in a given pattern suitable for filming. Then and only then are the cameras brought out to record the action....Even still, there is no guarantee that the fish and/or weather will cooperate for easy filming. As with all things, in order to guarantee the best opportunity for success it requires preparation, preparation and a little more preparation.

You have got to use other baits , as good as a senko is , the fish might want a faster moving bait like a spinner or a crank bait.

In the last ten years I have had two differant times that I have caught fish on every cast. It just doesn't happen that often.

People catching a fish on every cast are either

a) fishing a stocked pond or

B) fishing a school of bass that are going nuts

If it's A then you can't do anything bc they have access to a pond you don't. If it's B then you aren't seeing all the time that led up to the bass schooling up and all the time after the feeding frenzy is over.

Flukemaster fishes a private stocked fish that are feeder trained. It would make anyone look like a fishing God.

is it because i dont have a boat,

I catch more fish per hour from shore in the ponds that I fish than I have ever caught fishing in a lake in a boat.  One recommendation would be to change up your technique.  If a 4" senko isn't working on the bottom then try it as a soft jerkbait, try a ribbon tail worm, try a beaver, spinnerbait, crankbait, etc, etc.  Also, you want to be sure that you're fishing the right location for the time of year.  Summer fish are typically related to deeper cover or shade.

Typical fishing show is shot in one to two days - 22 mins of showtime in which 6-11 fish caught make for an excellent show. In addition to showing caught fish, the show will be comprised of advertisement, chat, and explanation time.

After doing several of these I can tell you that the editing can be extremely artistic. For example, one show I recall every fish coming to the boat, shot with the underwater camera was mine as was all the releases, yet when watching the finished product you would have had no such impression.

Remember that the shows are meant as entertainment and advertising. To watch the dull moments of no catching would definitely not be considered good entertainment.

I always figure if you AVERAGE one fish an hour it's an OK day.  One every half hour is a good day.  Anything more than that is bonus.  As others have said it depends on the fishery, weather, and patterns.
