    Well, there are more "depends" here than a retirement home.

    The location has a lot to do with it. Time of day plays a part, and obviously you have to have a good population of fish in the lake.

    Bank fishing is a lot tougher because you are many times limited on where you can fish and it can be a lot harder to determine underwater structure and countours. Many times the best bank fishing is 10 feet from the shore at night, so you have to be careful not to scare off fish.

    Personally I would not spend too much time in one place, even if you are in a boat, if there is not a bite. Move on after 30 minutes or so if you are not getting the fish you are after.
