You know, if we are really honest with ourselves, most the times it’s the cast. We may not recognize it at the time or ever. We like to say it was this color bait or that. And maybe sometimes that is true. But mostly it’s about the cast.
If you don’t have the ability or equipment to make the cast, then bad for you. If you do have those things, but don’t know where to cast and why, then still bad for you, except now you are probably going to badmouth all that nice equipment you bought. The hunter with the brand new gun who goes out and randomly fires is still a bad hunter.
So then, what to fire at?
Hopefully you are really starting to “see” the usefulness of Google Earth. At the same time, it is clear that it is not some cure all. It takes a combination of time on the water and time studying all your resources before the pieces start to come together. When it does, your enjoyment and efficiency for what you are doing will go up and your “love-hate” relationship with certain bodies of water will become mostly love.
