They act weird with those too. I have to put a new one on after a couple fish hit it because they'll chew the tails off
i really wish someone who catches lots of fish somewhere else would come spend a week fishing my lake with me! i bet id be alottt better!

It's got a lot to do with knowing what to look for and being able to use what you see on the fly. By no means am I a professional but my friends always bitch when I am catching fish and they aren't.. I pay attention to whats going on around me, and they don't.

It's also got a lot to do with knowing what fish are doing, where they hang out and what to use in specific conditions.

It would probably be beneficial to find a fishing forum (I use bassresource.com) with a section that has local guys that fish the areas that you do. Ask them how they are doing, if they are doing well ask what they are using and how they are using it. Not only does bait matter but presentation is key as well.

Also it's a lil early in the season (I'm on my phone so I really can't see where you're located) but if it's still cold then the water is too. Fish don't often feed in cold water, if it's warming up the bite will be too. If it's straight up warm then the fish are likely starting to bed which can be tough to fish as well. You'll be able to see them around shore sitting in their beds if they are in fact bedding.

I'm so in on this one!!

My dad's moose 2 years ago. Dropped it just before dusk, I drove about 20 minutes to get cell service so I could get my brother on his way with the quad. By the time we get back out there its completely dark, way up in an overgrown clearcut. Hell of a time getting it out but a blast.



And a couple fishing pics. First two are Goat River fishing for dollies. Third one is the 32lb spring salmon the bf caught on the Skeena, close to Prince Rupert.
