I have not fished very much with live bait for stripes & smallmouths but what little I have, I've never done any good. I like to fish below Wheeler Dam & have caught some really good fish with artificial lures but would like to learn how people fish using live bait.
The only way I have tried, is using a Split shot about 12 inches from the hook, pitched it out & let it drift with the boat until it hung up or the minnows died. Is this right or wrong? I realize this is a stupid question for alot of folks, but I am just curious & not to old to learn. I would appreciate any ideas or suggestions from someone that does know how to catch fish with live bait. Thanks
