    Adam, Welcome to the BOC/SOC :cool2:. I don't know anything about your area but I agree with the above info. Skip Jack and fresh shad as a general rule will net you bigger fish in most cases.

    Welcome to the BOC Adam. A good rule of thumb for catching bigger fish is use bigger bait and use bait that is native to the water your fishing--good luck!!

    Welcome !!!!! And use fresh cut bait preferably from the waters you are fishing. A castnet is a good investment for collecting baitfish !!!
