    You almost have to spoon feed them, and by that I mean they are not going to chase or move too far from cover, so you have to be in their face. Ain't easy, but it can be done. Stay safe and good luck!!!:wink:

    Larry is right, unless you can find a hot water discharge its very difficult but not impossible If you can get the bait to them.

    I would start by finding deep holes with a lot of structure and and bottom bounce that area. Like said before, you about have to land that bait right in their face.

    the bank will be tough... best chances are from a boat jigging smaller bait through holes and in structure.
