Man, I have been beating the water and cant seem to catch a fish. It has been some time since I have caught fish out on the lake. Not sure what is going on but I have had no success. It has gotten so bad that I have decided to not get in any tournaments lately. I cant even catch a little one. It has been the last 3 months for me.
I fished yesterday in several areas that I should have caught fish on every cast. I know people are catching, I just cant get a bite. I went to fayette and caught fish last weekend but lake Houston has become a bear for me. Only thing the least bit enjoyable yesterday evening was a bunch of pigs came down to the water edge right next to me. Those were the only hawgs I saw.

usually when that happens for me is i get so excited to catch a fish . I am fishing to fast and the more

i do not catch a fish the more i hurry to catch up. thinking the fish is just around the next stump or

structure . So the best i can give is slow down and concentrate on one structure at a time slow the

movement of the bait and actually picture in you mind what the bait is doing in the water. Until you slow everything

down the fish will continue to elude you. Concentrate is the name of the game.

Yes, I think I am trying to cover to much water and need to slow down. By the way Sticko, did I see you and maybe Dutch in a boat together on the bayou right before red gully around 3:30? While I have never met either of you, it looked like your picture.

I was abput to say the same thing. It get in your head and makes you change what is working.

Two conflicting game plans, 1. Get out you go to bait for that time of thr year, water color and sunlight and fish it real thorough. Or change it up, If your banging the shores, try deeper water and lures appropriate for that.

Yup, that was us. Sticko is usually in his own boat, but we played together Saturday. Stop and say Hi next time.

bassman the bass should be in the spawning flats and up on the bank in the spawning mood.

gravel points and ledges . Just pick one area and slow it down and concentrate on working the bait

properly and you will be back on your A game before you know it. if your quite and work slow

you can sight fish on beds even in the off color waters in lake houston. Be quite and slow listen

the bass will tell you where they are.

I had a 20lb stringer on fayette last weekend, but I probably get skunked 3 out of every 4 trips on LH, so I feel your pain. I want to be able to fish it better soooo bad.

Sticko/Dutch,

I think I saw you both as well around the same time.....just as we were getting swamped by a passing boat. I thought Dutch was going to lose his spider rig as the bow of that Tracker was rising/falling in the wake.

Bassman1, we were out on the water 8 hrs Saturday and caught just 3 LMB....3.5, 2.5, 1.5lb.....mostly along the bank at Skiers Cove. Everything looked so "fishy" in the bayou.....skunked. Water was 67 degrees and relatively clear. :x
