Ok, some of my questions sound dumb, but I am tired of trying "my way" when "my way" could bu the wrong way. When fishing for toohty fisy, is it best to attach a steel leeder to the end of your line and attach the lure to the leeder? How can I fish the bottom of a spillway and minimize the number if lost hooks and bait? when fishing for Saugueye, Bass and the loke, is it best to have one smooth retrieve rythm, or retrieve and jerk your rod simultaneously? I apologize for the silly questions, but I am fairly new to fishing for more that cats and crappie, and am losing the battle each time I come back empty handed. Any help would be great and hopefully I'll be able to post som pictures of my monster catches in the future.
