Default Skunked Again 2014 Thread

I am possibly the worst fisherman ever. I get skunked most of the time, yesterday was no different. Hit 4 lakes over an 8 hour period. Threw every rig and tactic I know at them, not a bite.

So, skunked again. Post here to document all of those hours on the water where it just didn't happen.

Ha, your a rookie I bet. I've been getting skunked since '03 when I got here.
Not only that I even spent 15 grand to do it.

In all honesty I've always been boater who was a good fisherman, but as time goes by here iam more and more turning into a boater in a fishing boat...

My grand daughter doesn't mind as she likes to drive.

I spent all of last summer fishing every free second I had. Lunch break, that hour between work and the gym, full days on the weekends, every week, and researching about fishing when I wasn't on the water. I picked up fly fishing between now and then however I still like spin casting from shore. I get skunked more than anyone. It is sad.

Happens to all of us. There are days when the action is hot and some days I get nothing in the same spot. Just keep trying.

The more I learn about fishing, the fewer fish I catch.

Anyone care to throw a sure thing lake/pond my way? Something in the metro area would be great. I am not asking for your cuttthroat spot in the wilderness or your Tiger Muskie honey hole I am asking for a lake or pond in the city that I can bring my 6-year old too and pluck out some easy fish with a worm on. Anything?

We all get the skunking sometimes. I spent 5 hours yesterday on some metro water and my reward was 2 bass, the biggest coming in at a hefty 5 inches, which I would consider pretty much a skunk.

No such thing as "for-sure"....

But if I were you, I would search in the "Reports" forum for metro area lakes or ponds from the last 3-4 years during the month of May. It'll take a little tweaking on your search, but if you go back before 2010, many many reports were far less "tight-lipped" so to speak.

Happy hunting.
