Default How long in 1 area?

If you are out on a boat fishing and you aren't catching anything (and the fish aren't biting), how long before you move on to a different spot?

I've been told that I am pretty impatient so I wanted to see what others do.

If I'm on my own or just with one friend, I might go 30-45 minutes without a nibble before I decide to move on, but if we have kids with us, they need a little more excitement than that.

It really depends on how it "feels". If the water "feels" alive, I may stay 45 minutes to an hour. If I'm short on time, I may move on in 15 minutes. It really just depends upon a lot of factors.

It depends on the time of day and how I "feel" the waters. I can stay for more than an hour in one spot if I "feel" that there is a good catch.

How the water feels does not affect how long I will stay in 1 area. If nothing is biting- then I move on. I think that is a big problem for a lot of people, they stay in 1 spot too long. I might stay 30 minutes, then I move on.

I am similar to Trophyfish. Thirty minutes is the longest time I stay on a spot without any trout striking my flies. The problem is if I fish with some friends on boat. We would often end up arguing to decide if we would stay on the spot or move to another one.
