Rainy Day Bassin

Sometimes the fish bite really well in the rain, and sometimes they don't.  A recent trip out to the lake proved to be just like this.  I seemed to catch fish intermittently.  I'd go into an area and be able to catch a couple fish, and then there would be a lull.  I'd go into another area and catch a couple, and there would be another lull.  It was very odd.   

I anticipated the bite to be much better than it was, but I guess that's fishing.  I kept thinking I needed to change my plastic worm to a swimbait, but I never actually did it.  This is something I am going to do in my next trip.  I had a feeling in the back of my mind that the fish were chasing shad more, and I needed to adjust, but I just didn't actually make the change.   

It could have been a game changer for the day, or it could have made no difference.  I think I need to be more flexible going forward, and be more willing to make those adjustments.   

I still caught a handful of fish, and had a good time on the water, but maybe if I had made the adjustment, a good day could have turned into a great day!

Who knows?  That's why we keep going out there and casting and trying to get better!
