I fished for an hour or so on Sunday with a hook, worm, and sinker. I dragged the bottom while drifting in a circle around the back eddy below the house. I caught:
a fresh water drum
A mooneyeAnd two Catfish, one small (not pictured) and one bigger one (about 6 or 7 pounds).
If I have to dead-drift something on the bottom of the river, it might as well be a night crawler.
