Before the last runnoff I had never used dip baits. But I saw the light. I was fishing in my uncles farm ponds and decided to use it for the first time. I found a nice spot where the creek was overflowing into the pond and let my bobber float in the current. It was not but about 3 min. and I had a nice 5# channel on the bank. My brother was with me and we had a great time. We sat there until they would not bite any more. Dip bait has become one of my favorite baits for channel because it seems like it always works. How do ya'll fish with dip bait for the best results? Shallow or Deep? Worm or bare hook?
