Losing the touch or just bad luck

Recommended Posts

hanson1287

Well for the eleventh time in a row, I got skunked today. I have fished chesterwoods, lake zumbro, whitewater river, rollingstone creek, fosters, the zumbro river, pool 2 of the mississippi, only to be skunked every time. This has by far been the worst start to open water i have ever had. Is anybody else experiencing this bad of luck or am i just losing my touch here.

i haven't caught anything yet but i have only went out twice for 2 hours each. i went to foster's both time. i didn't try powerbait like everyone raves about -- i figured i should be able to catch them on spoons. nope. on little rappalas? nope. on big spoons? nope. on a jig with a single tail grub? nope. little cleo spoon? nope. weedless daredevils with a red feather trailer? nope. mimic minows? nope. small jerk baits in perch/minnow/bluegill patterns? nope. I got skunked too. I just hate to give in to using live bait or the powerbait stuff.

Its just ur luck cause ive been catching a few fish. mainly lake Zumbro and few fish on the mississippi. Ive been to lake Zumbro twice now and caught 3 crappies the first time and 5 more a couple of days later. Bluegills have been slow though only getting a few here and there. size 6 ratso under a float took all fish. Fished 12ft to 18fow. As for the big river im still after that big female but lots a small sauger caught. hope your luck changes smile.gif.

After recieving 1 3/4 inches of rain...the spots I intended got a bit dirty. So I will have to wait a bit longer to wet a line!

Zumbro River. I sent you an email as well. It sounds like it could be a bit on the slower side, but I'm going to give it a try anyways.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
