I fish Piedmont alot. It has been a good year until now. The lake has been up and down so much that the shallow bite is tough. I really need to fish deeper water, I think . I have tried carolina rigs but can't stay with them. If I don't have the confidence in a bait and I don't get results, I can't stay with it. I had the same problem with tubes until I started doing good with them. Now I love tubes. Everyone at Piedmont says that this time of year, if you can't find them shallow, carolina rig the main lake points. Can anyone help me with some ideas? I really want to learn this. what else should I know? Thanks for your help.
