When im useing stinkbait I like to fish around trees that the water turkeys are roosting in, or at a cleaning dock where all the fish scraps fall. Another good place I like to use it is in the river on a bobble let the current push it into the slack water just letting it drag the bottom. I use sponges with #8 eagle claw trebles, I uselly only use a 1oz weight with it on a slip rig if im bottom fishing. When I use a float i like to use drinking strawls with a wire running threw it and put spray insulations (Great Stuff) inside the strawl for still water, for current I use one of those big pole floats u can buy at Walmart. Ill put on a couple split shots on for float riggin it. With the strawl set up you can really wear them out if the fish breaths on it you will know.
