Struggling when fishing new locations

 I took a 1.5 hour road trip to fish a new location and really struggled with the fishing. Can anybody else relate to this? I really should do my homework before going to new places!

 we all have that prob at times . some more than others. some days we struggle to even catch a sand whiting. you just gotta grin and bear it . look for other grounds and you will find some. you could also go back to the same area next week and totally nail it . fish swim around so you just gotta keep trying

I'm about 5 days from moving to Pinjarra and am really looking forward to exploring the river through there as well as the Peel inlet. Though am expecting many a dry trip at first
