Rookie I rarely fish with anyone except a few close friends. I only fish after midnight and during the week when most people are sleeping before going to work. I have lost several good spots because a friend told a friend and turned the location into the place to fish for everyone.
Ninety percent of the people during the week that fish after midnight hours don't speak english. They don't know me or ever see me with a fish,all fish go back. Plus you always catch more by yourself than you can with one or two people along.
Sorry it's not the answer you wanted but now you don't have to give up that fall season.
