I have had days like that (much too recently for my comfort). That's why they call it fishing instead of catching. However, it is always good to be out on the water. Gotta love those lake perch too!Bit of a short story to start, but I finally got to go fishing on Lake Erie last Thursday for perch and possibly walleye. Bought $25 worth of emerald shiner minnows and some fat dew worms for my spinner rigs for the eyes. There were many other boaters spread all over the water. My sonar was marking hundreds of fish - some on bottom and some suspended 25 feet down in 50 foot of water. With thousands of dollars worth of lures and a dozen fishing methods, you would think I could choose one that would entice a fish to bite. For all my time and trouble, between my son and I, I caught one GOBY !
(How many shiners does $25 buy? I complain when I pay $6 for three dozen fatheads and they only give me six dozen.)
