normally when I put a Trot line in Smith lake (Near Cullman) its a Two day process. I fish in the evening and put the lines out after dark. Then come over early in the AM and pick the lines. So far, not much! So I'm wondering if there is a set process for a Trot line in a Strange lake? I know they sleep during the day and come up to shallows in the evening. I put a Trot line in a Gully, from a Creek that runs all the time. In about 100' of Water. Nothing! Disgusting and a lot of work too. Then I went shallow and put the lines in less than 30' and still the bait was on the edge of the Creek, not actually down in the creek bed. Still nothing. Should I be putting these hooks right up in the 10' deep water along the beach? I used Fresh Minnows, Dead minnows, Processed Minnows out of a sack from some fish bait company, some stink bait and the last set was just plain Chicken livers. In Catoma lake I did get a few small Cats on Chicken livers. What's up? Why not me?
