    Went fishing yesterday morning down at the river.

    Got there about six, put a Jitterbug on my rod and reel and casted away.

    VERY first cast snagged a nice largemouth....bout two and a half to three pounds. Figured "Oh boy, is this going to be hot" what with it being the very first cast.

    Fished for another four hours and didn't get a thing. Kept expecting one to hit my line on every cast but no luck.

    Anyone else had a day like that? Or is it just my bad luck? :supergrin:

    Had same thing on my previous fishing, got first one right away and that's it, no more.
    one addition: nobody else cought anything else that day.
    But still feels "funny"...

    LOL, very normal day.....some days I go for hours and endless hours...time on the water is never deducted from your life-time, I believe, head back to the boat ramp, start catching bass, big bass, in the last 30 minutes, and can do no wrong....

    go figure.

    It's fishing.

    I know a couple of guys that say do what you can not to catch one on your first cast. They say if you do you might as well pack up and go home. Toss it out just enough to get a little slack in the line.

    YUP! That's fishing for ya! I went fishing /w my two nephews yesterday and usually we catch our limit or close to the limit. But yesterday I caught one decent sized Bluegill. $40 dollars spent on our fishing trip and only one Bluegill. FISH ON BROTHERS!:thumbsup:
