Maddening, isn't it?
We have one set of reports that would send us into the slopes to the ne of veatches looking for albies on the troll, but with no chunk bite. And if you miss the patch of water they are playing in, there really isn't much else to do/target in that area.
Or we have another report that is promising for a night chunk bite at the hudson, but with no day troll. All other recent reports from there were disappointing.
So what to do? Roll the die for a chunk bite, or for a troll bite? Either way, there is no plan B save the early morning troll in both cases.
Neither report is particularly worth chasing without some backup. I guess pick the closest, most promising water and hope things have turned on. Unless of course you know someone you trust who's been out.....
Champ or chump, it's still fun (though champ is much more so).
