    When I was a kid we lived on a river. I would make up a 10-15 hook line, with the hooks about a foot or little more apart. Tie on a heavy weight for the current on the end. Bait it up and coil it on the ground with the weight in my hand. Throw the weight out as far as I could while jerking my arm and body back so as not to get hooked when the bait came whizzing by. Very effective if you don't have a boat. Oh ya! Tie off the free end to something:wink:
