Last week the anchor was not grabbing right. SO this past Monday night I did find a 3 ft. section of chain and about 30 ft of rope, so last evening when it cooled of a little I added those on to my anchor set up I believed I had the problem solved.
Tuesday morning my grandson and I got to the ramp early to see if we could net some shad before we got the boat in the water. No luck with that idea. We headed straight downriver , marked fish as i had hoped put out the anchor and it Held! We were getting our rods baited up, a tow came in and pulled a barge out. Our boat was rocked but not too bad. Fished for about 20 minutes . No bites so ready to check out a different spot. The anchor was hung in a cable, could not free it,I had to cut the anchor rope! We did use the back anchor which did not hold very well. Tried a total of 5 spots, same results NO ACTION at all!!
I just cannot understand why no bites at places I used to catch fish in the past!trying to get my grandson to enjoy catfishing but hours & ours in a boat with nothing to going on is not helping!
