View Full Version : How do you handle a lazy follow that won't commit?

Had about a 20 follow a drifter super stalker in but stopped and just watched the figure 8's a couple of times before swimming off. 5 minutes later she followed a basstrix soft plastic swimbait to the boat but just watched the 8 again. What do you do in this situation?

It might just be a problem of fishing this gin clear water but it drives me nuts to see a good one coming in, speed up my retrieve or make it more eratic only for the fish to stop and watch from 15' away then swim off. Throw another bait and have em do the same thing.
Don't know but it sure gets your heart started.

Its happened to me also. It took about 4 days to finally catch the fish, coming back at different times until the fish was ready. Your best shot is probably right at sunset or after dark.

If it won't commit just do what Mr. Spray would.
