    need some help on getting bait on the right depth that fish are holding on when they are on the drop instead of on the bottom. just wondering how far to get away from the drop and placing my lines in the right spot

    Stringbean,
    I like to position my boat right on the break at the edge of the drop off. I usually start off by putting a line or two on the shallow side, one or two on the drop at different depths and at least one in the deep water. This will usually tell me at what depth the cats are feeding or where the larger fish are holding. Once I get a few fish in the boat, I reposition most of the lines to the depth that is getting the action.

    I hope this helps.
