The best advice I was ever given by a guide came from my good friend Josh Stevenson in Minnesota. The first time we met, we had a precious 3 hours to muskie fish in the most miserable cold front conditions ever. Long story short, despite my severe lack of hope, we caught 2 big muskies and lost a third in 30 minutes. Nobody else was fishing. Josh said, "you know, if you've got time to fish, just go fish. Don't worry about conditions or reports or barometric pressure or anything. Just go, because if you don't it's a 100% guarantee you're not going to catch anything." It feeds right into the old adage that if you wait for the perfect conditions, you'll never go fishing. On that note, while I can't speak for everyone, I would also certainly rather fish and catch nothing than mow the lawn, go to Home Depot, wash my truck, or do any of the other things I often do on non-fishing days.
