    Default Fishing the same spot over and over?

    Would you fish only one spot over and over? As a bank angle I have limited area to fish for crappies. I have tried a few spots but those are not as produce as the one I mostly fish. I know we all want some excitements and challenges, wanna learn the new locations and all, but would you give up this convenient and look for new spots all the time?
    To answer my own question, I would say “yes” for bass but crappie I am not sure.

    Sorry, I can't relate to bank anglers seeing as how much I use my fish finder to locate the presence of any fish at any depth. Various structure types many times are key to fish holding areas - even those close to shore. Recently my partner and I found that rocks were key fish holding areas in water less than 4'. 80 % of the lake I recently fished held no fish that bit - 20 % that did and especially shallow areas that had islands of weeds. Those fish were excitable - fish which anglers should try and discover by finding locations that hold them - the more the better. Fish don't come to us / we go to them!

    While I own a boat I have bank fished for years. It has served me well fishing the same spots. I have a couple of bank spots for crappie that they have continued to show up for the past 10 years. In October and November I will spend a lot of time at one bank spot in particular. In that spot I will in all likelihood catch around 1000 crappie during that period. It is rare for me to keep fish. I am an avid UL angler and will just sit on the bank and catch fish until I have had enough fun and leave....and in all likelihood come back to the same spot for many days in a row. The challenge for me was to find the spot in the first place. Once I find a spot I will fish it as long as it produces fish. It is the same when fishing in my boat. I have spots that continuously produce and I see no need to try and find other spots. Now if a spot quits producing I will go hunting again.

    I fish from the bank, as well as from a boat, depending on time constraints. I do find that if you locate crappie in a particular spot, that they will replenish regularly. I do not believe in the theory that you can "fish out" a spot, although I would never keep everything I catch from that spot.

    Even Buck Perry (Spoonplugging Fame) didn't think this was possible. That game fish tend to follow the forage, more than a specific location. If the spot you are fishing holds bait, then it will hold game fish as well and when taken from that spot, more will replace them - as long as the bait is still frequenting that spot. I believe that too. JMO.

    If you could wear out a spot a lot of us are wasting a lot of time building our slips into honey holes with brush and fish attractors. I prefer to fish from my boat but on bad weather days I fish my slip. And usually at the end of a boat trip I fish my slip for the white bass I attract there with a green underwater light.

    I’m not really worry about wearing out the spot and I know for certain that crappies would come back to this spot over and over all year round because of the shad, the wind, the depth of this lake (close to the deepest) and structure (rocks and docks) and most important this is area where two lakes connect with 3 medium size tunnels.
    My real question is “am I or are you gonna get tired of catching them from same area over and over and doesn’t seem like it challenge enough.
    I normally don’t keep any fish I caught, but I will make a few trips each year just for the fish that I would take home for my wife (catfish and crappie).

    I can't speak for you, but I sure wouldn't. If you get bored, there are lots of ways to increase the challenge.

    I can't catch that many fish in a year's time !
