WHERE TO FIND THE BIGGINS' - BOTTOM FISHING
Bait hangs out around structure and bigger fish hang out around bait. So the key is to find the proper structure. Below are some pics of what to look for on your GPS units. Pic 1 shows a rock formation. Pic 2 shows a ledge. You will find the rocks in depths of usually 15' or greater and they are scattered around the river and the sound. The rocks might be a single formation or a cluster. Both are target areas. When bottom fishing, use multiple lines and try to place some bait on top of the rocks and some beside the rocks so you have bait at different levels of the water column. In addition, you will find the ledges all down the river's edges. The pic shows a drop from 8' to 13'. Again try to place lines on top of the ledge and at the bottom of the ledge. For bait I like using fresh mullet and menhaden.
