    Water...:lol: j/k.. but that does help a lot... most ponds have SOME gills in them... and some shallow creeks.. lakes.. around the banks.. and they hit on almost anything!

    Usually find alot around boat docks, brush piles, and rock dams. Anything that might provide them cover.

    well, if your ever around the terre haute indiana area, i can take you out to my grandma and grandpas pond and theres alwasy about 150-200 of em in there you can go down there and throw a hook in without bait and sometimes one will see the hook and bite it. theres a flathead in there that helps control it a little, but one fish can only do so much lol

    Give me a long pond bank overhung by willow trees in about 4 - 6 feet of water and I'll be happy all day long. Put your favorite bait on a hook with a slip bobber and zing it under the branches. I think my ultralite rod is in the garage twitching just thinking about it!:tounge_out:

    from experience you can catch them anywhere i've caught em at night,out in the middle of this small run off.how i do it is just drop it in and if they dont hiit it when it hits the water reel it up and put in another spot.i nevere let my bait pole just sit.cause if they're there they will bite as soon as it hit the water.wax worms and pieces of nightcrawlers is all i use and kill em.
