Take time to explore and find new places. Broadening your horizons will open up more opportunities. You can't expect to always fish the same spot and stay productive.
Many people wonder how guides can consistently catch fish when others can't. My answer is to have knowledge of different areas and know how and when to fish them. The only way to do this is to get out and look around.
Sometimes I call a buddy and invite him on a scouting trip. He understands that we are on a fact-finding mission, and we may not catch fish. The purpose of our excursion is to find new spots. Sometimes all I want to do is just find out how to navigate the boat in and out of an area, see how the tide moves, or look for activity such as birds, stingrays and mullet, which are clues to a lively flat. I just want to get a feel for its potential. It usually takes a few trips to an area before you learn how to work it.
We took an exploratory trip around the bay. We found a few areas to come back and do a more detailed search. Other areas were eliminated, which is all part of the learning process. As you hear reports coming in from various locations, take the time to go investigate.
