Ventured out again this morning with the same sloppy conditions on the local lakes. The group of people fishing today are always fishing the same areas and it gets hit hard.
They all left early today so I was guessing that the bite was slow. People are so afraid to try something new.
My last 3 of 4 outings, I fished a new spot with no one near me and still caught beautiful gills and keeper perch. My best advice is to get away from the crowds.
These fish are getting pushed farther away as more and more people start their season and head straight to the spots everyone knows.
Don't get stuck in the crowd. Get away. Find a new spot. It just might pay off!
