Was wondering if anyone could give me some good ideas on hooking up with some big cats below damns. A friend has been bugging me lately on fishing Payneway damn on the St. Francis. ive fished rivers and lakes for years and only have tried below the damn a couple of times and bombed each time. With only mosquitos bites to show for it! Ive seen guys catching shad for bait there. Is that the best? Im mainly a trot line and stink bait and liver type fisherman. So any help would be great!
