Excuses for Not catching any fish

Posted: April 2, 2012 in Uncategorized

I saw this list of excuses people have given for not catching fish (real fish).

From the web site: http://www.superiorfishing.net/main/excuses.htm

· Currents too strong
· Barometer rising
· Wind “clocking” around
· East wind
· Barometer falling.
· Too calm
· Fish shut down just before we started
· The lake needs a good storm to stir them up.
· Fish are not here (or they’d be hitting)
· No currents
· Foggy
· Sunny
· Too windy to control boat
· Wrong moon phase
· Fish facing wrong way
· Trolling wrong directions
· Too many bait fish
· Not enough bait fish
· Didn’t have right lure action
· Didn’t have right lure color
· Single hooks
· Treble hooks
· Didn’t have enough time
· Water too rough
· South wind
· Gear not working properly
· Partner not fishing seriously·
Trolling motor troubles
· Cloudy

· Neither fishing major or minor
· Fish “Hitting Short”
