    Try fishing where the water turkeys roost. The cats lay up there waiting on them to poop, which is made up of fish an easy meal for them. I usually pull one from every tree. I generally use cut shad or shinners. They usually hit it as soon as it reaches bottom.:wink:

    Try using dough balls. I couldnt catch anything last time I went till I ran across a fella fishing with dough balls. So many people are feeding them bread from there piers he said that when they dont bite shad or cold worms they will hit bread.
