How many times do you get a hit, which hopefully leads to a landed fish, in your first few casts and then nothing for a good while or at all? For me the answer is frequently. I can only conclude that the disturbance caused by the initial contact has an unsettling effect on the area. I know you can say its nonsense, Bass will follow a hooked fish etc etc but it happens too often for it to be a coincidence. I'm not talking about areas you could expect the diturbance of a hooked fish to be an upset to others either, I can say this has happened to me at one time or another in ALL types of locations eastuaries rock marks, deep water, shallow, off the top...... Anybody have similar experiences?
