    Fished for four hrs today, not a single bite. I left one rod in the water while im lugging all my gear up to the truck. As i am puttting my stuff in the back of the truck, my bait clicker starts screaming. Well i dropped everything and the race is on, cept i cant run very fast cause i have a rod and a bunch of screws in my leg. By the time i got there ---- you guessed it the fish had run out about 40 ft. of line and dropped it. Now i gotta tell ya fellers, this seems to happen to me way to often, and im starting to get a complex. I swear them cats know when i get more than 50 ft. away from my pole, I can just hear them saying; come and get it fellas splitshot has left the area.:wink: Please tell me im not the only one this happens to.LOL:crazy:

    Oh the fish know. You know how we got fish finders? Well they got perimeter alerts! Anytime somone gets 20 or more feet away from their pole they attack.

    What happens to me is I help my buddy or his kids with thier pole or bait and BOOM!! The minute I step away they attack my pole but when I go to set it NOPE their gone w/free lunch. The fish call me soup kitchen.

    Splitshot, you can always do what I do. As you can see by my avatar I am round so instead of running I roll. I can get there twice as fast, lmao.

    lol, it never fails I can watch my lines for hours and walk up to the truck to get a coke or water and come back with April fighting a fish on MY rod.

    She says the fish like her, at this point I tend to agree.

    I'm always guaranteed to get a bite when nature calls....not proud of it but there has been a few times where I've tried to set the hook while whizzing off the side of the boat. hey it happens

    Yep that never fails. If I turn away from the rod holder on the boat that seems to make the fish bite. Circle hooks helped me fix that issue.

    Sorry to here alot of you guys are giving up on fish !! Try making very sturdy rod holders and "TIGHT-LINING" and you will not be giving up on these and other fish. Opinion: When you free-line you ALLOW the fish to drop the baits after they run.

    Just tryin to help ya'll. :roll_eyes: :roll_eyes: :roll_eyes:

    thats why a lot of fishermen i know wear camo lol to hide from the fish , fish believe it or not can see you sitting there , you might try laying down on the ground or prop a forked stick up next to yer truck and put yer coat on it and sneek back down to the rods lol
