Have you dropped any kind of structure in your slip?If not I would invest a little time in creating some. It will only increase you chances.
Yes a lot.
Willows, pvc condos, Christmas trees, structure is no problem.
Believe it or not there is nobody that has a bamboo stand in out little town. But plenty of good willows.
I just came in from the dock and caught a limit in two hours. Had 22 yesterday afternoon. I guess I'll just settle for daytime crappie.
