Cane Pole Technique Update

Been using a BnM cane pole for the last two months and it's been a blast. I'm using a bit of a different technique. Instead of using a float, I have been using line markers to make my line visible above water. I'm finding that my fishing became more active and I was able to react quicker with less deep hooking. My catch rate improved about 25%. since I was able to detect more side movement . The key is a tight line.

Hauled out my 15 footer and some worms the last few days. Been hauling in the gills since.

The fish are happier than with me flingin flies at them, it seems!

Side note- when I said I "destroy local trout anglers" I feel bad about it. I am not bragging I am talking statistics. The last three times out I have had a really nice person next to me. As I catch trout, I can see them trying desperately to pull every trick out of their bag. Unfortunately they don't have the good floats, hooks, line and bait I have. After so long, it wears on me a bit. They start slinking. The last three times out I then offered to help them and / or use my gear. It is so rewarding to watch someone go from depressed, sad, lake-eyed to landing a fish and jumping up and down.

The very last time in the Fall this happened, I had hooked some 20-plus fish - neighbor zero. I was kind. He didn't make comments about how I was lucky and he didn't above all cast in on my spot. This is an automatic for me - I always help those with manners. I asked and he took my spinning gear and cast in.

Sure enough - the largest trout of the day came out of the water like an ICBM about 6" to the side of the float - straight vertical. I said to him - that trout's on tighten up.

If he didn't catch the biggest trout when I packed up! So I had a keep bag and after he had caught another 2 trout, I let one trout go and was trying to beat dark by catching a big one. It took me 5 little catch-and-releases to hook up an a beast. Moral - good things come to those who help others to fishing success!!

Hey guys- thanks for the kind words. It is great that there is only 20" of ice left on the ponds today. The cold water starting out this April will provide a great challenge to anglers - I am so fired up about fishing this season - the most ever for me.
