    I found a spot on the Miss river at the bottom of a dam that is 70 feet deep on a part of the river that is normally 20 (with biggest holes of 30). There is no brush around and no other natural current breaks except for the churning rotation of the water falling over the lip of the dam.

    Is this a good place to fish? If so, do you pitch your bait and sinker right under the dam? Or... Do I fish it at the back of the wash where it starts to get shallow???


    Thanks,

    Sounds like a really good place to use a live bream (or whatever's legal there). I'd use very little weight and toss it up on the dam and let it wash naturally into the hole. Be ready to strike, or to pay out a little line if the current washes your bait back up against the dam. That's a nice, out-of-the-current spot for big cats to wait for food to float by.
