Default Gettin stinky

I haven't caught a fish since March 12th... been skunked the last few times I've been out. Between working like a dog, moving to Longmont, a custody battle (I filed for 50/50), and studying for my last CPA exam I haven't been able to fish at optimal times of day either.

I've been trying to fish the jerkbait even though I'm new to it and have yet to catch a fish on one. The last time I went out I fished for cats and carp, both of which I've never targeted but since I was going out at night and the other guys were targeting them I figured I'd join in... no luck.

My plan to break the skunk is to go back to what works for me... a kastmaster, a wacky or Texas rigged senko, and a nightcrawler (not all at the same time).

Somethings gotta give... I can't remember what it feels like to have a fish on!

My dad sent me this yesterday saying it reminded him of me. Not sure if it's about fishing or a double entendre... also not sure if he realized it could be a double entendre...

Try a fluke or other soft jerk-postspawn is a great time to throw one.

Ed, thanks for the tip! I'll give it a shot. I tried dropshotting a fluke without success. I'll try fishing it like a jerkbait.

I got skunked there last Friday!!! Granted I was mainly trying for cats at night.

I should've thrown out a nightcrawler... would've at least caught a dink.

First step would be to use the search function in the forum to find ways to not get skunked at the ponds!!! LMAO!!! J/K!!!

Get some 3 1/2" - 4" tubes and rig them weedless on a worm hook.. that should produce real good right now wherever the smallies/largies are. Look for structure, and cast around it until you find a fish... Move a lot and remember what triggered the fish. Work the bottom and middle of the water columns with a slow twitch retrieve and a slow swim now and then. have fun, man.. it will happen.

Just throw a kasty or slender spoon in Mallard. If you don't catch anything, I'll buy you a six pack.
