Trust Those Fishy Feelings

Posted: July 1st, 2015 by Bill Dance

Late last fall, a friend and I fished an old oxbow lake near the Mississippi River for six hours and caught one fish–yes, I said just one.

But a few times throughout the day, I had an intuition, a gut feeling…there were some things I knew I should have tried and some places I knew I should have gone, but I didn’t. Now, it didn’t bother me non-stop, but it did bother me off and on–for two weeks.

Finally, I called my fishing partner from that day and said, “You know, I think we ought to go back. I know that lake has a lot of fish in it, and I think I know what we did wrong. Let’s give the duck hunters their morning (waterfowl season was open by then) and let’s go back over there at about mid-morning, or so, and give those bass another chance. Fortunately, my fishing buddy, despite first saying, “Are you serious?” was willing to give the place another try.

I might have comforted him somewhat by adding, “You know those fish are in there somewhere. I mean there is a bank and there really are only so many places they can go. We KNOW they are in the water, somewhere.”

(My fishing partner took that in stride too, fortunately.)

And well, we went back and I tried the things that my intuition told me I should have tried on the previous trip. In 10 minutes we caught one that weighed 2 pounds, and then missed two more before going on a fish-catching tear. We ended up catching 32 bass. There wasn’t a fish over 3 pounds, but rest assured the return to this lake to catch ‘em made me feel good inside. And once again, it taught me the importance of trusting my intuition.
