What not to do... Be too busy at work and just rely on what was happening 2 weeks ago even though you know better. I was one of those guys that got his personal best BF a couple of weeks ago around the 181 when they were flying out of the water like missiles so I thought all of that fish could not have dried up completely...... I saw nothing but dead water all day yesterday even though I had some clients in from out of state and it would have been great to put them on the fish. no patties, no life, no birds on the 181 to around the 43, and no boats either. I read and heard about the 371 but these guys only had bought American licenses so I didn't risk it. I did find some patties around the 9 on the way in but they were dry. I hope this helps some of your planning gents.
