I’m a semi-newbie fisherman. My dad used to take me fishing Catfish years and years ago, but I never appreciated fishing until recently. Now you can say; I’m hooked. 


I recently picked up a St Croix Mojo 11ft with a Daiwa BG 6500; I went down to the canal 7 times so far since the pandemic (80 mile drive) tried bait fishing with cut mackerel; tried  using Daiwa SP minnow 6 3/4”; was there 5AM to 11AM on some days; 7PM to 11PM on others. After those trips, 2 stripers total, one of which was a keeper at 28”... past to trips last few days were going home with no hits... What am I doing wrong? Is it common to be slow this time of the year? I am a very very newbie to lures and watched videos of people fishing at the canal reeling fast and jerking the rod 7-10 times before the lure comes back, is that a fish biting or just trying to create action? Advice is soo appreciated! Thanks in advance!! 

Most of the time I am fishing I just get to see the beautiful scenery but once in a while I’ll land something nice.  Study, learn patterns but most of all enjoy your time away from work or whatever occupies your time most of the day.

That's fishing man.  You will never know if you will hook up until you go.  Enjoy your time there and just watch what others do.  If you get skunked, happens to the best of us.  If you're lucky, a school may pass thru and you will hook up.

 

Good luck!

Thanks
