    Default Darned near skunked

    I went out to enjoy the beautiful weather we had yesterday, and I might head out today again.

    I went out to the river yesterday and I couldn't get diddly squat to bite. I was casting to carp and nothing. Zilch. Nada. There were a lot of jumpers, but I was casting towards some HUGE feeders and just couldn't match what they were after. I tried every size, pattern, and color in the book. There was one carp that was a giant and he wouldn't budge from this one spot that was a nightmare to cast to. I'd get close and he'd take it very lightly, then go right back. This spot would have even given Lefty or Steve Rajeff a headache. I gave up after turning the pile of brush into a Christmas tree and went to another spot. I was rewarded with two freshwater drum that were smaller than my fly.

    At least you weren't skunked!

    I also came close yesterday. The catch of the day was a 4-5" largemouth, but it was a fish on the fly, so it was a successful day!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey you are seeing them all you got to do now is crack the code as to what flies they want. Somtimes I have to go through almost my whole fly box till I find somthing they want and other days they will suck anything up. Good luck!

    Check out the blind squirrel pattern that has been bouncing round the forum lately, or Joni's golden glo bug, they both seem to be having luck with the ol' golden bones in the past few weeks.
