how is it women think that no matter when you go fishing your gonna catch some. I spent 40 minutes figuring the best time of day to go,then checked the wind direction so I would know where to go on the lake and then checked the water clarity when I got there. A. so I knew where to start and B so I knew which color of lure to use. I also checked the water depth versus the wind speed so I knew which weight to use. since the water depth fluctuates daily the fish move in and out, they are also in their spawn beds waiting for the females to show up. okay I got things narrowed down to from noon to two as the very best time to fish. this means I need to leave by 10 am to get gas, make the drive, get on the water, check things out, then pick where to start fishing. simple right? yeah,,, no, her theory is the fish are still gonna be there since they got nowhere else to go. who cares if the wind is gonna be blowing 20 mph right up the canyon [or that we have to fight that head wind all the way own to the lake] and there is a thunder storm coming through at about 3. it's fine if we get there at 2.30 and almost get the boat in the water while it's banging against the dock and we are getting soaked from the lighting included rain storm. so after yesterday's fiasco I just loaded up the boat and went by myself today. left by 10, was home by 4, and caught about 30 fish without even trying too hard.
