Heh, it's always frustrating to see fish tailing your lure but don't hit. They get wise after a few chase and totally ignore your lure. :p Try working the lure in a different way to get their attention.

That PB probably got wary of the lure, that's why not attacking.
Or it is not "hungry" enough to feed ...

If you spotted it from a distance, it's a good chance to work your lure to tempt it to attack your lure.
Stay cool and slowed down just a little bit or give it a twitch ...
That could be the moment the PB is waiting for to attack.
Fish generally attack lure when it is in that split second where it "stop"or "twitch".
Well ... it's easy to sit and and type a wall of words.
Do not give up ... you get a big one someday.
Keep trying, you will feel all these time "wasted" is worth while when you land your dream fish.
Thanks for sharing your experience and good luck on your next trip. :clover:
