    Man ive had a lot of days like that i had a day were i had bites for at least 9 hours and the only fish i caught was a half pound channel lol i stayed because over and over i told myself thats just a small fish a big one will bite but he never did and i was about as mad as ever getting bites and no fish and no bites are just about the same as far as how bad they suck....better luck next trip man

    this whole full moon period has been very bad. i only got out once during it (last night) and man it was really bad, 2 runs and i dink flattie. 4 other people i know were out almost every day on the gmr and at all hours of the day and night through the week and had similar success. this week has been far worse than any period during the spawn the past month. at least then you could catch dinks.

    Feel for ya man, went down around Hamilton, left because we couldnt fish the spot I had wanted to....so we took off and fished the GMR near Middletown...got 1 run and ran into a log jam because i wasnt paying attention...helping my buddy with his rig, and then got a lot of runs and taps but nothing else the rest of the night. Also had a couple of idiots running around on quads and dirtbikes around us most of the night....the area is full of holes and drops....figured I would hear a crash sooner or later

    Funny, I hooked my turtle on the second try last night. Circle hook right in the corner of the mouth. If you don't see them, you just don't know.

    Do you fish circle hooks with your free spool and clicker on..........
    or tight lined and in a good rod holder?
    Cuz you said you were getting "runs" and not "pull downs"
    When usin circle hooks I personally just tight line.I don't let them run at all
