Nothing personal but i dont still fishing either. Dont like P-Rigs etc. I like feeling the fish hit to much for that, and being able to entice Wally to strike after they pick at it a little bit first. Without that i wouldnt fish i guess. Im not interested in catching the other type of fish like Suckers or Sturgeon, Goldeye etc..
In another post i mentioned that all ive been catching this year in the NSR is Wally's n Saugers. Normally i get more Pike. Havnt even caught a Pike this year yet. Strange.
Anyway i use jigs. All colors. If i get no luck after 15/20 mins. i switch to another color till i find something they want. Works for me.
I dont give up after a hour like someone here was saying they do either. I havnt gone home skunked from NSR for a very long time even if i do say so myself.
There's never anyone around where i fish, just the way i like it. Not interested in company. Its not a common spot i guess. Solitude while fishing is good for me. And no im not giving my little spot up but look for deeper water(pools) closer to bends and places that have structure like downed trees, logs, rocks etc.
Hang in there it'll happen. Just drag jig very slowly along the bottom. Jigs are great cause your going to lose some and there cheap to replace.
Just my nickel's worth,cause pennies are a goner soon.
PS. The first year i fished NSR i didnt do so good at the start. You'll get the
hang if it the more you go.
