Bad conditions? Bad fishermen? Or maybe both. LOL �� But I am a weekend warrior and have to go when I can.
And I am trying to pattern the shad also, that is a whole other topic.
I will give my report on a bad day:
Nov. 5 2018
Arrive at lake at 2 pm
Wind: Small breeze from the east
Made 12-15 casts with Thunder Hawk. Hung on ? And broke off
Go to car and get rig #2. Walk back to lake and make 2 casts. Hang on ?and break off. Tie on Ned Bait and make 1 cast. Hang on ? And break off
Tie on Bass N Grub. Make 30 or more casts. Hang on ? And break off.
Return to car. Throw all equipment in car.
Burn rubber leaving parking lot.
Go by beer store and get a 12 pack.
Jump in recliner. Drink 3 or 4 beers while wife prepares dinner.
Life is good except for the xx##$$** fish bite.
Hope beer lasts through the shiXXty TV programs tonight.
Will get up and vote tomorrow and return to lake to lose more lures.
