    i couldn't catch a catfish if it jumped in my pocket! i am so awful that i'm contemplating selling my boat and gear and using the proceeds to buy a couple surf poles and try every payed lake in the state of ohio.

    I agree with copycat...unless they took your avatar picture when you were running out of the fish market with a stolen catfish.

    everyone has a rough spot, i myself am going through a rough spot, but all you gotta do is just keep trying and eventually you will come out of this slump.

    Awe shucks, if we could all catch a monster or two on every trip we go on fishing wouldn't be as fun as it is. We all go through a slump every once in a while, thats what makes your next big catch so great!! You've just got to find him and/or her.. And we all know what we've gotta do in order to find 'em.. we's gotta GO FISHING!

    Sounds like we are all in a slump. Haven't caught but 1 dinky bullhead in 2 weeks. Gonna try the Spring River this Friday night. No telling what we'll come back with. Trout, eel, walleye, bass, gills, carp, buffalo, cats, smallies and the list goes on. River has em all.

    Don't feel bad. We all experience our problems. Our day is coming.
    Just got back from a 5 hour fishing trip and didn't get a bite but my wife caught a 9 1/2 lb channel on Sonny's Dip Bait with a Looper Rig. Of course when we got home she had to call one of our daughters. This seems to be happening more and more.
