I'm going fishing on canyon in about a hour and was gonna ask what rig to use to not get hung? I'm out of chum and I need to get some shad. All the bait shop has is frozen. I'm gonna try drift fishing with a bobber. Any help will be appreciated.

Well, I'm a little late with help but,
If your are drifting, find area's that have few hang-ups and have rock/mussels around.
Anywhere from 8' - 30'. Cut bait normally.

If you are fishing around hang-ups and trees then I anchor and fish Liver under a slip float.
3'-20' normally.

The catfish on Canyon school and travel around the lake.
You must go hunting.
If they are there you will get a bite in under 30 minutes.

Summer time on Canyon means rec traffic (aka idiots) so get there at sun-up and leave early.

Hope it helps.
