​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​"Quick Tip" — Bait Fishing Basics

Flowchart: Process: Fishing Tip of the Week  With the large amount of moisture that a majority of the state is receiving, it is important to try areas of a lake that have an inlet. By fishing an inlet or any area that has new water flowing, many fish will congregate in these areas looking for food that the current has brought to them. In these kind of situations, try using a slip bobber rig to keep the bait in the current but not along the bottom. Many of the fish will suspend in these spots and this is a good way to keep your bait in front of the fish.
