Go with fresh cut bait and you can't go wrong anytime, as for where there are fish anywhere on the river your willing to look. Now back to bait, you can start with what your holding in your pick that looks to be about the right size for bait. :big_smile:
Actually, Mel, fresh cut shad is hard to beat. Even fresh cut asian carp are getting better as the catfish learn to eat it more, When those bighead carp first came on the scene, the catfish refused to eat them. Now, with less shad around, they have adapted and started eating the bigheads.
As for where? A lot of that would depend on where in MO you are.
Fish behind the wing-***** near the scour holes, reverse current areas and straight-line current. A good fish finder is critical in locating fish and struture. I use frozen and fresh skipjack for bait. I cut my skips into different size baits and change things up until I see a pattern!:wink:
