sometimes I see but cant catch em why cant I ?

It is frustrating when you can see fish, but they aren’t even the least bit interested in what is on your line. There can be several reasons for this. First, the fish may not be hungry. Find out the best time of day, or of the night, to get the fish you want the most. If you get to your fishing spot before they are ready to eat, then your bait is likely going to be attractive to them when they are in feeding mode.
Your bait may be wrong too so you will want to check that out. I always recommend having at least three types of bait on hand that work for the type of fish you are after. Then you can change your bait if you see fish but they aren’t nibbling on it. Always check the fishing reports too so that you have a good indicator of what they are consuming out there.
