Anybody having the experience I'm having?
Regarding the kind offer of $500 for my new boat, I really appreciate it. However, I think I'll hang onto it for awhile -- especially since my girlfriend likes it, too. And speaking of her: Believe it or not, she doesn't even want to be an honest woman. She tried that before and it didn't work well, so now she prefers being a girlfriend. So now I have another question: Is there some way I can make the fish understand?!
Thanks again, guys. I love reading your comments, and I'll try to keep in touch better from now on. Also, if I learn anything that may be of value to you -- anything from fish to boats to women -- I'll let you know!
There's your problem. Good Lord man, why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win? Pop the question and make her an honest woman.
Fish know this stuff.
Spring fishing was very weird as we usually expect fish to be in the shallows during the spring months. We found crappies and 30 to 40 feet of water showing them about 10 to 15 below the surface. Fishing them at the 10 to 15 foot depth caught no fish. However, if I dragged the bait thru the weeds on the bottom, I got a lot of bites.
I have not been out for a month, but the last 2 or 3 times I was out I was shut out. A rare experience for me.
You just have to keep on trying different methods and depths despite what you locator tells you. Artificial baits are great because you do not have to worry about fishing without a worm 90 percent of the time.
I did get some nice bass and crappies out of Montanis early in the year, but have not fished the area since then. The bass were by the spring on the west side in the slop and the crappies were on the bottom in the deep, like there is a deep hole in there.
