    I would fish the edge of the deep hole where it comes up shallow. Near the rocks is good, but if you can find where the rocks end is a good place.

    I agree with Desperado, dont want the bait to slip down between the rocks where they can not get to it. Find that transition shelf from deep to shallow water. good luck.

    Edge of the flat along a deepwater dropoff always works for me. Rock are definitely a plus though. I love a good Catfight.

    A 3 way sacrifice rig is perfect for that situation. Just make the sacrifice line long enough to keep your bait up. Get it snagged and leave it there. When a fish grabs it you lose your weights and bring in your fish!
