    The guide we went with last week used small (1" or so) goldfish under a bobber in slack water.

    I'd never seen one of those goldeye before and was astounded at the teeth they have!

    I use a worm and a bobber on the upside of wing dykes in the slack water.

    I think we might have figured them out tonight! We went out and tied up on an outside bend...we walk down the back and fished the slack water! We ended up with 4! Another thing...We caught 5 drum about 8 to 10 in long. Has anyone ever tried them, if so have you had any luck on them!
