I'm after anything that's not a panfish. I can catch those all day long. Yesterday I went to Dorey Park which has a pond they stock with trout and channel cats. There's also a pier. I was the only one there so I got to put three lines in the water with cut bait going for catfish. I did catch a 16" largemouth, but it was really skinny. Other than the bait I caught that was my only fish.

I can only comment for bass fishing, but I've only fished Dorey a couple times and never had much luck. I like both Echo Lake and Three Lakes parks for bass, Echo because I generally have good luck and think the scenery is nice, and Three Lakes has pretty nice sized bass and pickerel. Both parks have much less access from the bank than Dorey though. I don't have any experience with catfish though, but both should be stocked. Feel to reply or PM me if you want any specific advice on fishing them.

Ugh, skunked again today. I'm starting to think I just don't know wtf I'm doing fishing out of a boat on a lake. I went the entirety of 2019 without getting skunked, but only bank fishing. I see the fish on my sonar, I see them jumping around me, they just won't get in the goddamn boat.

The ideas remain the same, the only thing that changes is the angle you fish from. Don't get wrapped up in your electronics, just focus on what you know and how to do it.

Gravy Boat 2k

Fished the surf with little success this morning at sunrise. Some porgies, croakers, catfish and one keeper whiting. The sandbar was pretty long and shallow so we waded out to the edge and casted as far as we could. I think the keepers were way out there beyond reach due to salinity levels from all the rain. The pelicans were dive bombing them out there.

This big bellied dude was throwing out big pieces of chunk bait and catching black tip sharks for fun with the his little boy, casting out past the bar. The kid was loving it. Of course he got them to shore and released from there so they definitely cruised past us on the way back out. Four footers. I figure they're everywhere anyways, so what the hell.

Throw this in a pot, add some broth, a potato? Baby you got a stew going!

I posted about it in my local FB group and I got a guy to spill all the beans about where/how to catch wiper there. It was really surprising and refreshing because most of the time these guys are like, "did you check in the water? HURRRR"

In my experience, fishing stripers/wipers/white bass is best done at dusk, just after the sun has left the water. Fan-cast a 1/2 oz Mepps and look for the swirls. Let the birds tell you where the bait is and start there. Where current meets points is best in the reservoirs.

Just location and presentation. This lake is kind of temperamental I guess, if you're not RIGHT ON them with the right lure you don't catch poo poo. I've also been throwing bass stuff mainly, and this lake is kinda poo poo for regular bass.

So basically he just said "go here and throw this" which on this lake is the only way you're going to catch anything, if someone tells you directly how. You'd spend forever trying to puzzle it out on your own, which jives with my experience so far.
