Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach
Best results are under a cork, also use a # 12 pet spoon under cork with @ 4-6 foot tag line, silver with yellow feathers. Long sweeping retrieve, pause repeat. Idea is to let spoon ketch up with cork.
