I fish waters all the time known for big shovelheads, and blues. Such as the Ohio and Licking River and some lakes known for big fish. But i can never seem to catch them. I've tried baits anywhere from whole and cut shad, bluegill whole and cut, and chubs and shiners and a number of other baits. I fish sometimes on bottom, sometimes with a bobber and i've only landed 1 fish over 10 pounds. Is it crappy luck, or is it just me?
