The Darkness comes good

It has been a poor week of fishing to say the least. I met up with Rod for a session one evening and we where fronted with perfect conditions. Apart from a couple of possible knocks we saw no signs of Bass being present. We decided on a move and we had a couple of casts at another mark. I had a Bass boil right next to me as it passed through with the tide but no takers on the lures…

I have really wanted to get a fish off the top this year but even the topwater’s where picking up plenty of weed almost from the instance they landed.

More often than not I like to have a back up plan when I go fishing. I’ll rephrase that more of another option if things don’t pan out… Sometimes I just get that feeling that this isn’t going to happen or you take a gamble on the conditions and are met with dirty water and floating weed. I like to have another chance at saving the session and possibly getting into a fish or two. Sometimes the back up plans are better than the first idea… But you have to gamble and try these new ideas in order to learn…
