okay, i've been going out every weekend since the beginning of the year, and all i've got to show is a big, fat skunk. so i don't know what i'm doing wrong. i just can't find the fish anywhere. hopefully i'll find out here...

this is how i approach the river to cover as much water as i can. i fish with 2 rod setups: bobber and spinner. i start with the bobber rod, first cast always close in and i let it drift a ways, adjust bobber stop as needed till i'm about a foot or so off bottom. 2 floats later, i'll cast about 2 feet further out. and so on until i cast to the other bank, or as far as i can get my lure.

then i switch to the spinner rod, and start off close to the bank, quartering it in slowly as it bumps the riverbed once in a while. then i cast 2 feet further out, and 2 more feet until i hit the other bank.

then i take several steps downstream and continue the pattern with the spinner. if the water is clear, i space my spots a little further apart. i'll repeat this with the spinner until i get to the area at the end of my earlier bobber drift. then i switch back to the bobber rod and start all over again.

so i get a lot of casting practice and i think i'm covering the entire section of water, but i am not getting no fish.

am i doing this right? any advice would be appreciated.
