    what is the best way to fish with yellow bellies on or off the bottom and where do you prefer to hook it when fishing with it.

    either way most people i know use them under a float but im a bottom fisherman myself most of the time so i put her on the bottom.But id probably say the best way is under a float.

    i usually get them on redworms and nightcrawlers. But if you know a spot with a high enough concentration of them we get larger (10-14in) bullheads on small cut shad

    forgot to mention, with the cut shad i usually fish weightless so the bobber lays on its side. so when the larger bullhead hits it you will see the bobber streak or pop up then underwater
