A fun time for me....
When fingerings are stocked on the high spring water, they hide in the tree roots, bushes and partially submerged vegetation.
All predators feast here.
Funny how a 10 lb+ sneeks into 8" of water undetected.
If you don't use a tiny bait, and color maters, no fish for you.
So you bounce that tiny jig to a rod length in front of you and hold till it gets picked up at your feet. Fish are there and they just suck your bait off the bottom. I watch this in amazement.
