As you scan through your fondest fishing memories, they are likely derived from those trips when the fish were, “jumping in the boat,” or “biting everything we threw at them.” These were the days when you, “caught so many, we ran out of bait,” or the bites when you were, “shaking off three-pounders so we could catch the fives.”
Now, be honest with yourself. Those epic success stories are few and far between. You’ll spend many more days on the water when the time spent fishing far exceeds the time spent catching, and excuses coupled to weather, lunar phase, water temperature, and bug hatches substantially outnumber bites.
