3 bites but no fish in the boat

  1. Overcast sky and light down river breeze as I launched my boat this morning. I had my lines in the water at 08:30 at my favorite spot. No bites there so I went to the 2nd Ky. pier of the L&N bridge. I got 3 hard bites there in 30 minutes. The fish never ran with the bait so never got a pull on any of the fish. All the bites were on cut thawed skipjack fillet. I then went to check out other spots, marked fish at the 5 other places but NO bites. The down river wind got stronger as the time went by, to having white caps. I just gave up and went back to the ramp at 12:30 It was rough getting bounced around in my small boat. I will give it another try this Thursday, hopefully with better results.
  2. Sounds like how theyve been hitting lately. I cant seem to see flatheads on the fish finder. Not sure if its cuz they hug the bottom or what. Have u been able to see them?
