Alright, Ya know I keep on hearing everyone say find the bait find the fish. I can honestly say i don't understand that quote when it comes to river fishing. Lake fishing for shovel heads at night it makes perfect sense but river fishing i just don't get it and ill tell ya why. for instance, winter time means that blues and large channels are headin deep. Thats where the majority of them are caught that I know of. Anyways, do you really think that there is bait out in screaming current on the bottom in say 50 feet of water?? I don't myself but I want some other opinions. For instance the other day where I got bait there were shad in there so thick it was unbelievable. Just for $hits and giggles I thought about what everyone said find the bait find the fish so i fished the mouth of that creek. NOTHING!! Headed on back out into the river into 45-55 feet of water and started gettin em. I know they gotta eat sometime but I don't agree with the find the bait find the fish theory personally. Lets hear whatchas think about it. If that were the way it was all of us would be fishing in creeks and marinas all the time. And hot water discharges in late winter.
