This post from G&G went up yesterday. Of course, it is a pretty good read and makes the old brain juices start to flow a bit.
I have to say, several of these situations for me have been big zeros in terms of success.
I know, theoretically, that traveling fish or fish who are running can be caught. I have yet to count myself among the people who have caught fish with that mindset.
I used to bomb out hero casts trying to entice those fish, but I don’t do that anymore. For me, I’d prefer to stir things up less. Maybe that long bomb spooks some other fish I haven’t seen yet. Maybe that fish making a B-Line will settle down if I don’t mess with it. Maybe these are theories I hold because I haven’t gotten those fish to eat yet?
I just need to see it happen with my own eyes before I really can take it to heart.
How about you? You find success in those situations?
