I fish the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers and when I am fishing for eating size stinkbaiters I will only stay in one spot 15 minutes without a bite, but when going for larger fish I will give a spot around an hour. I catch my own bait...shad, skipjack, mooneye, bluegill. I use my electronics extensively. I do my best for boat position though the Missouri can be a challenge. I do great for the 1 to 4 pound fish but the big boys are very rare (which they should be). I know there are numerous factors to consider but I am trying to get over the hump to catch the 20# plus fish more consistant. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION right?
