From the article:

Quote: The author's goal for angler readers is to develop a system of positive thinking in the fishing game. He says nothing beats the feeling of leaving the dock "when your heart, head and soul are in alignment ..." and you have a "rock-solid belief that 'Yep, today we are gonna get 'em.' "

IMO: My heart and soul are already on the lake, my body and my boat are playing catch up!!!

DTRO,

Does postive thinking still apply when out catfishing with no luck and its 3:00 a.m. and a hour and half drive in front of you grin.gif.

This is when I feel most down in the dumps. But!! On Monday morning when I start to read post in catfish forum, my positive attitude comes right back into play. cool.gif

This has been my weekly cycle as of late!!!

Um. Allow me to interject that the point of fishing is to have fun. If it's not fun, then do something that doesn't involve too much heat or sandflies or whatever stimulus is bothering you.

We don't get paid to do this and it doesn't have to be a death march.

I know that most of the time I go out fishing I dont expect to catch anything unless i had caught them a day or two before. (Except for my one secret spot in MN.) If you have low expectations you cant be disappointed. But I agree fishing is can be very relaxing, and helps you forget about the daily grind of life that can get you down. It makes my weeks go by much faster knowing I will be able to get out fishing sometime during the week and the weekends.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.

      Yep that's us... Cabin #2 and #3...  You part of the other group we chat with up there??

      Thanks for the reply.  Have had much time for research this year. Do you usually stay at pine tree cove?

      People who enjoy the North Shore and Lake Superior and want to help shape its future are encouraged to consider volunteering to serve on the Governor’s Council on Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program.  This is a citizen advisory group that sets grant funding priorities, reviews grant applications and recommends projects to receive funding through the Coastal Program. All funded projects benefit Minnesota’s coastal area. The 15-member council is made up of three representatives each for Carlton, Cook, Lake and St Louis counties and three at-large positions that can be filled statewide. There are ten available seats on the council. The council meets about five times per year at various North Shore locations. Council members receive travel reimbursement and serve 60 to 70 hours per year while fulfilling a two or three year term. All adult Minnesotans are eligible to serve. Anyone interested can apply online at the Minnesota Secretary of State website or download a paper application. For more information about the Coastal Program’s work and service area, see the program webpage. Questions about the Coastal Program and application process can be directed to Amber Westerbur, Coastal Program manager, at 218-834-1445 or amber.westerbur@state.mn.us.
