The JuJu

38 posts in this topic

So, once upon a time I caught fish. Pretty regularly, and even had a tendency to out fish my friends and family.

But for the last ...idk..year.. my fishing had been terrible. Couple small ones here and there, but mostly skunk days. Like lots of consecutive skunk days. Even when others in the boat might be catching fish...on the same lure.

I'm not generally a superstitious person, but at this point I'm questioning which piece of clothing might be "unlucky". Even my fishing buddies will be like, "did you bring a banana today?". It's to the point where I feel like their fishing suffers when I go.

Yet, I'm probably at the peak of my fishing knowledge and interest level. I'm reading every report, I'm watching videos, I cleaned out and organized my tackle, I have 3 poles instead of one now... 

I know about the ned rig. 2014-2015 I slayed em on the ned rig. This Year I think it's got me one dink. 

Some how I have wronged the fish and they have jinxed me. Or, all my days off happen to be rain or high pressure. Maybe they can smell my desperation.

Have you ever escaped the JuJu? Is there a particular mountain I need to climb? Or lucky charm I need to obtain?

Yeah I've never had that problem,  you should give it up and take up golf or baking.

maybe try something new.

for example  I  recently took up fly fishing for gar and carp last year. Plenty of those to catch just about anywhere and I learned a bunch of new techniques that improved my skills.

Man it's like reading my own thread.  

Bought a new boat and things were great.  Then a slump as you described.  Got so bad I wanted to sell the boat and give up altogether.   Took a long break and that helped.  Slowly getting it back but it's not what it used to be.  

 

If you find a fix, let me know would ya?

See, that's one thing that I changed also. Definitely not a new boat but an upgrade for sure. 

Boat game, best it's ever been. Fish game, terrible.

 

I have went from an aluminum boat with no graphs or trolling motor, to an actual bass boat.... with an iPilot trolling motor...same thoughts about selling out and maybe going flat bottom.

Same here on boat game.  Love my RT188.  I've got a great setup. 

 

Just need the fish to cooperate better.  I was on fire there for a while when it was new.  

 

Definitely need to fish more. Just haven't had time this year.
