There have been many times when I was out on the water and the fishing was horrible. I’m talking about not getting anything that even resembled a bite. Then all of the sudden, I noticed something that ended up being the key to catching fish.
Sometimes what you think should work, based on every fishing article you have ever read, just does not seem to be what the bass are interested in. It’s in times like this that noticing one very important detail can make all of the difference.
Slight temperature variations
Early one spring I was out on a lake I grew up on. The water temperature was still in the upper 30s. After hitting all of the textbook areas where the fish were supposed to be, given the conditions, I still hadn’t gotten a bite. It was then that I made a decision to take one section of the lake and just dissect it with precision.
