Hi AMFisHers! This AMFisH blog post is about the dreaded getting skunked outings we all hate so much.
For those of you not familiar with this term is means not catching any fish on an outing. So for starters this will happen, will not be fun but there is not much that can be done to prevent this from happening.
No matter how much you practice, study the lake, be organized with fishing gear getting skunked happens. It could be a number of this that cause this, examples being frustrated, too much on your mind causing you to not be focused, using the wrong baits, you name it lots of things can result in the skunk!
Best way to be prepared for the skunk is to make peace with the fact that you may not catch fish every time you go out fishing. Once you make peace with this when it happens you will tolerate it easier. On these not so good fishing dad it’s best to stop and revisit what you have been doing that day, regrouping can lead you to catching a fish and preventing the skunk!
If regrouping does not work try observing other people fishing, maybe even ask a few of them if they have had any luck, this can be another clue as to why you were not catching. If they have not caught then there is more going on, example a storm rolled through turning the fishing off for the day.
Lastly I use skunk days as practice days, using baits I want to learn more about that I have not dedicated much time to practicing with, no sense in wasting an outing!
Hope you found this post helpful and may those skunk days stay away for a while!
