Fishing Trips

Slow Night

Not all outings are successful. I fished the Ohio River for an hour and only caught one sauger on a square bill crankbait. I wasn’t expecting to catch a sauger. Hopefully, I can go back and fish for walleye/sauger in that spot and catch some more.


I fished about as much cover as possible in an hour and never figured out where the bass were located. There was very little boat traffic on the river tonight, which made for a beautiful evening. I only saw one other fishing boat, maybe others knew the fish weren’t biting.


These are the kinds of evenings that you love to be on the water. It is also the reason why they call it fishing and not catching.

One thought on “Slow Night

  1. “Fishing and not catching”… you are a kindred spirit. Though for a while I guided fishing trips on some of the most active rivers in the US up in Alaska, we still had quiet times when the client would look at me with an expression of (where’s the fish). I have often gone down to local streams when i knew catching anything was merely a dream, but went there more for the peace, quiet and wondrous beauty in a land surely touched by the finger of God.
