Foul hooking one means you were in the "ZONE". Keep in the zone, and you will get one very soon, I'm sure. Go back to that same spot, because where there is one, there is more. They all use the same holding spots. It took me about a year to get my first one, after probably 15 trips. Then I knew how the bite felt, and hooked 5 that first day I hooked the one. Now I know I missed several that felt the same before catching that first one, because I didn't set the hook, because I wasn't sure. Now, I set the hook anytime I'm not sure, atleast I'll keep from snagging, if it is a rock.
