Ok little bit of a dumb question but what would be the best way to catch bait fish (shad/bluegill/skipjack)? I have fished for cats before and always used chicken liver, but I am really getting into the sport and I want to catch some good size fish. I have noticed that everyone has there own way of fishing for the cats in there area, I would like for some tips that I could try. Most of my fishing was from a bank but today I got me a boat. What would be a good way of catching these wonderful fish, anchoring or drifting? The area I will mostly be fishing will be Watts Bar and the Hiwassee River, any help would be great. Thanks for the help!
