One of the many things I have learned through fishing is about expectations. I try to keep expectations of catching fish to a minimum. I know it is hard, but it keeps me in check and allows me to concentrate on the surroundings. I, too go through times where it is a challenge to catch fish. I have been skunked steelheading quite a bit, but that had to do with timing. For me building confidence is important. Using worms and focusing on catching other "easier" species, if at all possible (check the regulations) helps with that. Like many have said cover lots of water and get to know one body of water or area of water really well and this will help you locate fish.

I upsets me as well. The worst is the amount of fishing line that gets tossed in bushes etc etc. killing of the birds, wildlife. It is unfortunate, and I have witnessed that it is absolutely brutal on the Lake O tribs. There is a little more to fishing than catching fish.

In Topic: Islander or Kingpin Imperial CP?

I own an Islander and have no complaints. Great reel, takes a lot of abuse and is made in Canada.  Not sure the price difference, but in my opinion you pay the extra for the KP for the name. Just my opinion.

Nice fish folks. Lake O sure can produce some wicked sized fish.
