Ok, experts....I've never done this and need help.

I'm taking my old, rotten 15' bass boat below Wheeler...want to catch smallies, cats, drum, turtles, whatever will hit. The boat has a 115 merc and sits LOW in the water...i'm a bit hesitant to be close to the dam, quite honestly.

I have an old Archie Phillips video on how to drift for smallmouth...i'm going to try my luck with their methods.

So....What kind of bait do I need? How big of bait? Where do I position my boat below the dam to catch it? What do I catch it with? How do I keep this bait alive in my boat? How do I hook the bait??

Yes, I'll wear a life jacket the entire time.
