I was just wandering if anyone else ever tried this. cause I have and had some good success when they wouldn't bite this is how we got them too. well at the paylake here in ohio(lake julie ann) in harrison. I was slowly trolling warmouths on a bobber about 3-5 ft off the bank. standing on one bank and throwing parallel with another in about 2-4ft of water at most and caught a couple good size flats. and another night in polk county north carolina me and my little brother were fishin for channels with livers. and noticed we were only gettin bites on the retreival. so we started throwin out next to this over flow drain that had a phone pole with a street light on it shining over the water and were throwing out and slowly reeling it back in and started killin eating size channels and a few real good ones. so I just wonder if anyone else has tried, would try, or just plain think it is a stupid idea.
