Alright. So I have been trying out my luck at John Paul Jones Park off of Bass Pro. No luck using live shad, cut shad, worms or stink bait. Got a few bites on the cut shad but didn't land anything. Today I tried a new technique that only my father had told me about years ago and actually had some luck. I used a balloon. Yes, a balloon. Caught a really really nice channel cat on cut shad. I will be trying this again tomorrow morning after dropping the kiddos off at school. Any tricks or tips on using this balloon set up?
