Is it just me or does it seem whenever you are not paying attention you always seem to get a bite? Last night out throwing topwaters i had 3 or 4 fish come up while I was lighting a smoke, or getting a drink. It just never fails does it!! Anyone else have similar stories or problems?
I usually have one hit when I say I'm leaving or light a smoke,tinkle,go for a pop. Same with Duck & Gosse hunting. Packing up I'll get flocks in when I just sat for 2 hours and saw 3 birds. Deer hunting ,sitting in my stand all morn,as I'm leaving the big buck comes out snorts & I should have been sitting a little longer. Drop my waders for the Big Johnson call & they come in everytime.I'm yelling shooooooot while all I have is my pea shooter out in the breeze.

I can't tell you how many big Eye's I've caught at the River with my Rapala just floating in the water 2 feet in front of me after a retrieve.....BAM it scares the crap out of you because your not paying attention.......
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
