To borrow a line from Forrest Gump, "I'm Not a Smart Man". I always have multiple options for a fishing trip. Today I chose to drive about 7 hours to fish for 3 1/2 hours. I was trying for a Lifer and maybe a species or two for "The Push".
The Good was that I caught fish right away. I was turning down opportunities trying to get that Lifer.
The Bad, I did not get the Lifer. I tried. I tried hard. It was Hot. I stayed with it, but it just did not happen. Yet. It will.
the Ugly, way too much driving and not near enough actual fishing. If you haven't micro fished you probably thin
