Doesn't happen often but it still does happen
Me and my nephew didn't get to fish yesterday like planned. Issues,,with a day of steady rain, had us call it off till this afternoon. He fished various live and other baits from were he sat,,,I wandered all up and down the lake hitting the 'pads' with SEVERAL different offerings from the fly box. Then near dark we sat out a couple spinning outfits apiece for catfish.
You know what we caught.
Humbling. Very humbling. I mean if the fish had ignored ME,,perhaps I could blame myself and reason this all out. But he's a fairly good fisherlad and he was using BAIT,,and didn't catch anything.
I think the baro pressure from the storm/cool'er front that came thur just quashed everything in the lake that eats anything.
Can an entire lake be demonically possessed and try to run you insane ?
It has to be one of the two and I'd prefer to go with baro pressure/cool front.
A tip off is that at no time this evening did the gills come shallow. None. Again, I'm not the best 'lake' fisherman that ever lived,,much preferring streams, but still.............
Still it was a blessing of an evening in all seriousness. The far shore was absolutely golden for a time , the lake was a blue silver after dark. No way am I seriously complaining about the time spent today.
