    pickers are a tough problem. If you are fishing for just food i recomend a stinger hook. tie your hood that you use for bait and about a foot behind it but a treble hook. u will almost always snag them with this one (only do this if u plan to eat then, because this is VERY hard on fish). but when we have pickers we often bait then end of the hook with something very tasty. we use nightcrawlers mostly. Put your shad on and tip the hook with about 1/4 of a crawler. this will usually get them to hang on a second or two longer, long enough to hook them! good luck

    Stingers, & the "Terrible" hooks will help!! The secert is to have the pole in your hand ready after they start and then pull when they pull, even if it is just a bump!!!!!! I have about a 10% hook up ratio when the Muds do this and am dang proud of it toooo!!! :wink:
