Well I got skunked again. It seems to be a trend for me this year.
2 years ago you couldn't keep me from catching bass, last year I tried a lot of new things, techniques and lures etc, and I caught a lot less.
So far this year I have spent hours at the river over a few days, and spent 10 hours in a john boat with a buddy on Saturday without a 1 fish caught between the two of us.
Im feeling the jinx settle on me. My go to farm pond, no bites. My 'confidence baits', no bites.
Hopefully I can turn this around, my confidence is waning.

Thanks for listening to me complain, here are a couple pictures I took Saturday. A nice foggy early morning start, clearing out to blue sunny skies. Lots of wildlife around, birds and turtles. Even saw some large carp or catfish jumping and attacking bait, but couldn't get a picture of them.

When the water warms a little, you'll be back.

Fished Saturday and Sunday -- one bass about 15 inches long. My fishing buddy today caught a nice blue catfish though. Didn't weigh him but I would guess at least fifteen pounds. He'll be swimming in grease later this week.

we were marking lots of fish at various depths. tried just about every type of bait and lure. spent a lot of time throwing a finesse jig with tiny pacas, weightless t-rigged worms, lipless cranks. my partner was throwing his set of different things. hit all the lay downs, hidden rock piles, creek beds etc.
just didnt get the right things in front of them i guess
