First off - how did you make out?
Live bait is a sure way to catch many different fish other than panfish such as bass and pickerel.
The float & hanging bait
is one of the best presentations whether live bait or lures. Not all lures work under a float so you have to consider which do best.
Fish location is everything
when it comes to fishing. No bait can catch fish that aren't there which is why fishing from a boat that moves to different areas to try is a big
When it comes to lures, in my experience nothing
compares to soft plastics. There are thousands of shapes that catch fish as well as if not better than live bait. All you need is the proper ballhead jig and hook size. Spinning reels are the best for casting small, light lures long distance and spooled with no-stretch braid line that transmits the slightest taps.
I could write a book containing all the options and choices an angler has when it comes to catching fish, but I don't want to bore you with long dissertation. Most important in learning what to fish and how to fish it and where to fish is from your own experiences and successes.
