I don’t fish with anyone who says they have a secret spot anymore. Especially on moving water, you know creeks, rivers or streams. Why??? Because after fishing for better than 60 years… I have, more than likely, already fished that “secret” spot someone thinks they have.
I had a guy about 4 or 5 years back tell me he had a “secret spot”. The problem with that was, I’ve already fished it and fished it recently.
It was on a stretch of water along a bike path and a soccer field probably close to a mile of water.
I seriously thought he was kidding.
