A while back my girlfriend, AKA Ballast posted on the forum that she didn't care if she caught a fish, for her it was all about the peace and quiet.
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=50899&p=521485#p521485
I warned her not to say such things as the fishing gods may just reward her statement with a drought, and sure enough nearly 2 years later and she has caught bugger all let alone anything worth keeping.
She asked me the other day what she could do to lift the curse and get her Mojo back, I said I have no idea I have never tempted the powers that be I said it may just be a matter of time until the Gods forgive you is there anything she can do?
Sacrafice a favourite lure or some ritual she can perform?

I'd suggest changing her name (Ballast).
In day's of old, if you changed a boats name it was considered bad luck :(
Unless you requested the gods permission (whilst having a virgin urinate on the bow (along with other rituals) :D
Now, I'm not sure if this applies to humans and how you'd do it, but it would be bloody funny to see if you tried :D :D :D
Might have a problem convincing "Ballast" to do this ????
Also may be a problem finding and then convincing a virgin to drop their pants for this serious ritual......
Good luck :D

Thats easy, I'm surprised more here don't practice this age old sacrifice, dead easy, simply buy the most expensive rod and reel combo you can comfortably afford and drop it into the deepest water you can find.... works every time.

On the paddle/pedal home with no rod and reel, you are bound to see loads of feeding Kings Flathead Salmon and many other species.

On your next fishing trip with her, call into a good bakery and buy a number of donuts and together eat them quickly, washed down with good coffee. After that, she hopefully will not be able to manage another donut even if she wanted to. Then go fishing. That should do it.

Putting a sneaky sardine in one of them should help! :D

Interesting subject.

In Fremantle the Catholics have the blessing of the fleet. You can pray to the standard God, but if you can find one that specialises in the area of fishing, you may get a better result.
I've Googled fishing Gods and it makes quite interesting reading such as the Ku-ula-kai the Hawaiian God of Fishing but I'm not sure if his powers extend down to Ozz. Ebisu, the Japanese God of fishing could be the go.

Probably an Aboriginal fishing God would be closer to the mark.

Voodoo is a bit difficult because it usually involves a live chicken and a woman going into a trance

Sacrificing virgins is out of fashion due to the extreme shortage.

But, try going out in your kayak, chanting "Oh Mighty God of Fishing" and other such stuff, throw a toy fish into the water for the God to play with and don't be too demanding and don't give up praying, you could be praying to the God of Fishing during his RDO.

Good luck

Pete

Some advice

Fish may not bite if a barefoot woman passes you on the way to the dock.
Spit on your bait before casting your rod to make fish bite.
Throw back your first catch for good luck.
It is bad luck to change rods while fishing.
Don't tell anyone how many fish you've caught until you're done or you won't catch another.

Pretty much every time I've thrown back a legal fish of the target species (when I'm fishing for a feed) when it was my first fish, I've not caught anything else for the trip.
I was trout fishing the other day, caught one after about 5 minutes and threw it back as last time I'd been there it was a fish every few minutes.
Caught nothing else after 4 hours.

Ok I can help here, this is the only way! It's what I did back in the day when I knew nothing, well like 6 years ago anyways and I catch good fish now (maybe I should post one day but that's another story, will start soon though). First step she needs to spend her spare time reading every fishing mag she can get her paws on and watch every fishing did worth its salt (yes pun intended) I recommend no I insist you watch every "the fishing dvd" out. This is what there about http://www.fishingdvd.com.au/what-is-the-fdvd.php

There just an awesome informative fishing dvd series, they are well priced, first few were only $10 each for 2 hours worth of good information and film/photography when they came out. Now up to number 31 and still only charge $15, they are all categorized for you in all types of fishing, they give away almost everything on how to fish if u listen. I own every one and will remain loyal and continue buying everyone even though I think I know how to fish better than 3/4 of the guys on the dvd now haha. They do get a bit repetitive but sounds like she needs it, I did.

One guy to look out for that knows his stuff is bargy watch every mark bargenquast section you can find on the fishing dvd, he will teach u the way of the jedi. Then if she doesn't catch fish after all this, give it up, no really give up! Everything should come naturally after this brain washing repetitive fishing dvd series, but they are good and I own and have watched every fishing dvd known to man and these take the pretty much take the cake for what you're doing.

hope this helps :D

Well, I am reliably informed that ;
If you can have sex (with a partner, not on your own) on foredeck, standing up, in a 20 knot wind, without your partner catching you, you will have very good luck :D :D :D :D
Cheers,
Rod
FTFY Rod.

My advice to her - take up golf for 6 months.
After that, every fishing trip will seem enjoyable and not frustrating at all.

I spent years trying to catch my first legal Mulloway, promising the fishing gods the whole time that I would release the first one I ever caught. Well I finally caught that first legal Mulloway (in the surf down Robe way) and took it home and ate it!!!
But I still caught another four legal Mulloway that year :)
It's the weather gods I seem to have p*ssed off?!
