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.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
