Maybe you planned to fish yesterday.
Maybe you had all of your gear packed, a kayak loaded into the truck bed, and even packed a few on the water snacks. packed away.
Maybe your friend was even standing at the dock, waiting.
Mistakes happen. You can still make up for it by doubling-down on today, getting out on the water and staying out for twice as long as you normally fish.
Try a few new tactics that may pay off big dividends, like trolling where you usually cast a jig, or ripping a jerkbait throw where you normally play it slow. Try both. Just don't let today be a waste after you missed out on yesterday.
Also, don't forget to apologize to the friend you stood up at the dock.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
