What type of bottom do you prefer to fish over?
No mud or clay. Ruins my equipment and I don't wish to track it in my car.
Not to mention the fish seem to be better quality.... hate to soak fish only to have a muddy taste remaining. Also mud seems to 'cloud' the bait. Then with the clay , the shoreline is also clay and makes for dangerous conditions as around here , clay banks are high and slippery. I'd rather catch the fish , not vice versa.
I have to go with a rock bottom. Water stays clearer and gives them cats some cover and the meat has a cleaner taste. when I'm bank fishing, rocks can be kinda tricky but Mud and clay can get extremely slick and be dangerous. I have a couple spots on the MDC were I just can't resist tracking down in the mud but at the 1st sign of rain here or up stream I'm out of there.
I like a nice round smooth one, preferably in a bikini.:wink:
The rock,sand,gravel sound good. I have fished some clay and mud bottoms near here an caught some awful nice size channel catch's.
Guess I like then all.
Not on the list! Not on the list!Unqualified answer!oooh:
But I would have to agree! :cool2:
Hey Earl you forgot my favorites on the poll wash boarded with heavy structure.
I encounter all the above conditions in the river system that I fish, but I much prefer rocks and sand bottoms. Since I'm mostly CPR taste doesn't enter the equation and there are times when mud flats are very productive. I guess I just go to where they are:smile2::smile2: Stay safe and stick a pig!!!:wink:
Rocks,the bigger and more numerous,the better.:wink:
There you go Dave, giving away the "secret" places to slay those monsters. :burn_joss_stick: :angry: :dribble: :0a31:
I would love to fish a sand bottom with no snags, but I doubt any big blues would be hanging around. I think the best bottom is rocks with a current.
I like the Rock, Sand Gravel areas.
