The more you fish, the more you catch. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. Just like peeling an onion. Every time you reveal a layer, there’s another one. So, what is this all about? Usually, I’m talking about fishing for two or three days in a row and then making one more trip the next day. I always thought the last day was the best fishing. I guess I thought this was because I was “warmed up” or in tune with the whereabouts of my targeted species.
