We fish primarily brush piles, or laydowns where trees have fallen.
Mostly in 17-22 foot, and use minnows, some jigs cause I'm learning. If they are biting you will know in the first
10 minutes, I start about a foot off the bottom, and come up slowly about two-three feet, repeat.
Often we'll catch 3-4 pretty quick, and then it slows down, I stay til we go 15 min with out a bite then move,
even if you can still see them. I'l go to 5-6 spots and then start over, or check some others...
