Hunt Smart, Fish Hard

I have been trying to get onto the water to fish, but Mother Nature had different plans. She had let it rain for a while and turned the streams, ponds and lakes into a muddy mess. Now it was a waiting game before I could get on the water. I knew with a couple of days with no rain the water would clear up.

I got in touch with Adam and was going to check with the land owner to see if it was OK to come over and do some fishing. Adam got back in touch with me and let me know that she said the pond was still all muddy. It was so much for fishing that pond or any other one at this time. It was Tuesday afternoon and we decided to try it again on Saturday because there was no rain predicted for the rest of the week.
