How to deal with those tough conditions

I love when the weather gets colder. Weeds out the fair weather anglers and a lot more river to fish. After yesterdays tough fish,I decided to start fresh. Down sized my float,weights and line and going with small bags and single eggs again. Also decided to fish deep frog waters and way inside seams of the fast. It was the right choice. 1st drift and had a fish on at my 1st spot.  This usually means, the rest of the morning will suck. Only the one fish out of the 1st pool after a half hour, moved on to my next spot. This one turned out to be the only one I would have to fish for the rest of the morning . Single eggs took 4 of the fish, 1st was on a small chartreuse bag . One fish I lost as I thought I was dragging bottom,so just lifted the rod, but well,it was a fish that swam away. LMAO. All good,as I was laughing at myself as I know,hook sets are free.

I fish alone,with no body else,and taking selfies when no one is around, is ok by me. LOL

Right on. I know what you are saying about the "early" fish. If I have a musky follow early (like first 15 minutes) or a rod goes off early trolling...you better catch that fish because there ain't gonna be nuthin happening the rest of the day. No clue why, but that early fish can be a real curse.

Caught a 4.75 largemouth 2 minutes into a tournament this fall…thought we were toast…sure enough a 30 minute lul ensued…then we caught 3 3lb smallies on three casts, back in business!

But not always, my best day ever was opening morning of musky season in 2001 

I left the dock at 7:30 and headed to a favorite spot and got a musky on the very 1st cast of the season then boated another 8 fish by 10:00, so 9 fish in 2 1/2 hours.

But it doesn't always work that way  LOL
