    Re: Missed takedowns

    We had two nice take downs that did not hook down river from Garcia Bend. We ended up getting skunked. Got two nice ones on Saturday. Limited out by 9:30 am.

    Dude we had three fish take downs on BCP's at miller yesterday, one that was on for a bit, and just came off. I JUST replaced all my hooks with brand new hi-quality hooks, "rig river" type

    Have no explanation

    I think it is due to less aggressive fish.....its been a soft bite all year for me on the American. The fish rarely turn downstream and run with the plug like they usually do. The bite has just been a slight tug then run strait at the boat.

    I am 4 for about 20 bites. I was 0 for 16 before I started setting the hook faster lol. Its been a tough one this year!

I usually buy the hooks when I buy the lures so I can hold the lure up to the hooks and get something similar or 1 size larger. Best of luck out there
