Indeed, Sticko. I agree completely about finding several spots in close proximity; and on a different thread I've mentioned how now it's getting to the point I can induce a strike on more than 50% of my jig drops even if I miss the hookset.
So yeah, the confidence thing is behind me.
I like the yak because of the low profile from fish eyes below. I look like a big floating log that is swept stationary against some type of structure. Not some huge honking rectangle that blocks out the sun. Smaller bow waves upon approach as well. Also, my motor never gives me any issues.
It runs on Gatorade! The 6 inch draft never made me upset. Looking forward to that shallow spawn.
The areas I want to target for more mature fish , let's say, the railroad, that's an hour paddle, each way. I can spend that time trying to pull up fish. Although I'm considering launching at LH marina. However, I've always been one to consolidate work. This last weekend, I had 4 different people approach me on water and ask if I was the same guy in this same spot yesterday, last week and so on.
I do thank you again for your insight, like not moving from your fish. I agree there too, although, I've yet to start changing size and color, I've just been rotating sides of the same pile(s) until the bite is dead for 30 mins. I then run off somewhere else and return to pile #1
I'll give the size/color change next time bite goes weak. By the way, I may have met you when I first started on LH last year during spring. If you ever were cleaning fish at the station at BJ's, and asked for advice for a newbie. (Like that's never happened to you before lol) The fella sorta resembled your avatar. Some time ago though, so who knows.
Thanks again! If you see me on water, give a holler.
