It's Been A Grind

April 28, 2015

I was fortunate enough to guide several groups over the past few day's and even though the bite was tougher then any of us would have like to see it was still a great time. 

Thankfully we had some pretty decent weather (except Saturday morning) which made the fishing much more tolerable. The woo's of guiding one day your on a good bite and the next day it's gone. So many variable play into the cause of the fish activity such as weather, water flows and levels, moon phase etc....Nonetheless that's fishing and being able to present several different options is key to success some times. The last week was pretty much a river bite but the presentation varied from day to day. Most all of our keepers came on pulling crank baits but it had to be a particular bait and color at the perfect speed and depth. Vertical jigging is my favorite way to get hooked up with these toothy critters but it can be a challenge for the novice to learn. The bite is sometimes so light many don't feel it. Fish to your clients abilities and help them tune in their techniques while educating them on other methods. Key to success is not to give up and keep moving to find the active bite and when you find it don't leave so soon. Sometimes you may find a lull in the action but I have found in the early spring fishing the bite usually picks up in the afternoon once the surface temp warms up a few degrees. With the river holding tight to the bottom it can sometimes be a bit difficult to mark them on our graph. I would normally say don't fish where you don't mark fish but in the case of the river and or fishing shallow you sometimes have to fish to find the fish. I have lots of confidence in fishing the river and knowing that those fish are their it's just a matter of figuring out what bait they prefer that day. Stay positive and versatile and stick with your game plan and remember it's not always's about the fish it's about spending time tighter and enjoying what nature has giving us. Catching good fish just makes it better!
