  • Fish with an attitude

     In all sports, your attitude makes a difference in how you perform. Often we overload our heads with all the negative issues facing us on the water. There is nothing wrong with recognizing the conditions that make a day challenging. Just don’t let that bring you down. Stare down a challenge and rise to the occasion. We often surprise ourselves when we grit our teeth and move forward. Confidence is built on stepping up and overcoming those challenges. How do you overcome weather conditions, boat traffic and other bad attitudes on the water?

     Whether from a boat or land, fishing has been tough this summer for Brunswick County.

Even with the stable weather we have had, the fish do not want to bite for long periods of time.
