I’d like to walk you through a scenario that I’m pretty sure all of us have experienced a time or two. It’s Friday night around 9 p.m. You’re out in the garage, getting ready for your early morning date with a bunch of fish. You know there are bunches of fish out there just waiting to jump into your boat because you’ve been assiduously studying your copy of WaterLine Weekly since Thursday morning. You have your target species picked out and your tackle box is loaded with the appropriate gear needed to take on these pescados. After a much-needed good night’s rest (hey, you’ve had a hard work week), you wake up bright and early Saturday morning ready to go fishing. To your amazement, everything at the ramp goes smoothly. The boat motor fires off without a hitch and purrs like a kitten with a ball of yarn. You get the boat up on plane and start off into the great outdoors, dreaming about what this beautiful morning’s adventure has in store for you.
You get to your first spot and start casting away, with excitement in your heart. An hour later, not a single bite. What the heck? You say to yourself, “Capt. Josh Greer’s (XXL Charters) column said if I go here there would be plenty of fish, and Robert Lugiewicz (Fishin’ Franks) said if I use these baits they’d be easy to catch — but I can’t buy a bite. The heck with them. I’m going to this other area where Capt. Mike Myers (Reelshark Charters) said I’d be able to catch some nice fish, and I’ll use the baits Jeff Kincaid (Capt. Ted’s Tackle) sold me.”
