How many of you have gotten uncomfortable lately?
« on: March 20, 2017, 07:11:13 PM »

Let me clarify a little further on what I mean. How many of you have taken steps to try and adopted utilizing new techniques or baits to increase your skill set as a bank fishing angler?

Since I posed the question, I will use myself as an example. I fish soft plastics often when I bank fish, however you tell me to REALLY slow it down and fish it SLOWLY and I start becoming REALLY uncomfortable. Fishing slow to me is like watching paint dry while someone is running their nails down a chalk board. However... over I time I have learned that slowing down in given situations has its advantages and has yielded me nice fish where I wouldn't have caught them otherwise with other faster techniques I employ.

So with that being said, when was the last time you got uncomfortable?

Throwing a chatterbait in a small pond. It feels like I am spooking all the fish, even though I know better.

Throwing an a-rig. Sounds like a fat man belly flopping when it hits the water. Haven't gotten anything on it yet but I'm still trying!

Throwing big swimbaits, the kasploosh in annoying, like throwing a brick in the water. And the slow retrieve takes an eternity, only to get one bite.

I'd rather drag a C-rig.

So I don't think there is a "technique" I feel uncomfortable with when bank fishing.
I can fish as slow as molasses or as fast as LMG. Speed isn't an issue either.

But I do get uncomfortable fishing deep water. Because most of my fishing is done shallow if I go to a lake or pond that has some deeper waters I tend to question the technique I am using. I become impatient and tend to change techniques constantly to figure out a bite. Fishing deep means there are no targets to cast to on a visual level.

I got drunk and woke up in a Wal-Mart parking lot naked. I was pretty uncomfortable.

But seriously, anything that is waaaay slow, and I'm bored. If I'm bored I'm uncomfortable. I was flipping a worm one day. I was trying to fish it slow back to the boat. Then I was just getting pissed off. So I had to flip, bounce, and reel back quick to make the next flip. Funny thing is, I started catching fish like that. Lol.
