How long has your guy's longest slump been? I am having the worst slump i've had in a while. And not just me, but my fishing buddies too. It has to have been 3 if not 4 weeks. I'm just targeting the little eater channels (to me, the easy ones to catch) at the same ponds that have produced for me time and time again. I know there are fish there... they just stocked them recently. I've tried shad, liver, worms,which is what has produced for me in the past (and all at once)... pretty much the top 3 channel cat baits for all I know. I've tried different locations, in close to the bank, out far, tight line, loose line... this is killing me. The thing is I'm getting at least 5 bites every time I go, sometimes little nibbles and sometimes like tonight they hit it really hard... but every time they hit it once and just seem to leave. I know i'm not using too big of hooks. Now this year we have got way more rain then normal, but still I fee like I've been going enough to at least catch a few. Don't get me wrong... its not all about catching fish for me and I really just enjoy being outdoors, but I am one bewildered, frustrated, and most of all discouraged fisherman.
