What am I missing?
The last few weeks have been an epic struggle on the water for me. I’m not sure exactly what I am missing but I can’t put a good day together to save my life. Take this past Saturday for example…we started in Fall Creek throwing traps, squarebills, and spinnerbaits on the rocks on the left as you get into Fall Creek…nada. We rolled into Spring Creek and continued the same pattern…nada. At that point we wrote the creeks off and went down lake to the long point on the front of Hong Kong. Throwing jerkbaits on that point…nada (I have caught good fish off of this point on a jerkbait this time of year). The very next spot we hit was behind 4 corners and we caught a 3.5 and a 5.5 on a red eye shad and 1.5 squarebill. We fished for 3 more hours without another bite. I can’t figure out if I need to run down lake first and hit those points with jerkbaits first and then move into the shallower water as the day goes on. I would have figured Spring and Fall Creek would be busting wide open with 55-57 degree water. I can’t figure out if I just suck at fishing or what the deal is. If I do truly suck, then I need to sell my boat. 🙂 It doesn’t help that they continue to jack with the water levels for what reason, I don’t know. The lake looked to be a foot lower than it was last Saturday in the Frostbite.
