Re: Can\'t get the skunk out of the bag!!!!

I put in a few trips myself before I was rewarded with chrome. The thing I have found is when you get in a skunk slump, the only way to get out of it is fish your way out. The next trip you may be the one on fire. It happens that way sometimes :shrug:

Tilla = 112 hours = 0 springers

I agree, try different baits, different speeds and remember depth is pretty crucial. It does take a ton of time usually to get into some fish or figure them out, it you really do at all.
That skunk will say bye-bye soon enough.

Re: Can\'t get the skunk out of the bag!!!!

I have been trying for three years and have yet to hook up with one. I am limited to the bank being I have no boat so that cuts my odds even more one of these days I will hook up with one. :whazzup:

Re: Can\'t get the skunk out of the bag!!!!

Thanks for all the frendly advice. This time last year I had ten springers on my tag. :cheers: I didnt change my approach since last year. I am limited to fishing smaller waters because of my 12' dingy. :mad: Cut plug herring seemed to be the ticket last year but not this year. I cant seem to figure it out. :shrug: : Maybe you guys should send my some of that spring chrome mojo :cheers:

Sorry Smeltman.... you gotta have your own mojo, and only YOU can provide it!

At least that's my experience..... :wink:

Can\'t get the skunk out of the bag!!!!

I dont think its my year to catch one of these little slimy springers. I have tried with no avail yet. Yesterday I fished the lower MC with no luck saw about 8 fish caught. Anybody know what I am doing wrong let me know any advice would be helpful. Tight lines
