Ifishforfood said:hey, i bank fish along the columbia all over from the i-205 bridge to fairview. do any of you guys know any spots i could get some shad? also, any tips on rigs to use from the shore? i've fished for them at cascade locks with my dad, and i know they fight like the devil! any tips would be great, thanks.
Ifishforfood said:so, if i put on a small jighead with a few split shot and cast into the current, and let the current take it I will catch some? when we fished for them at the locks, we put on a cannonball on the bottom with two dropper hooks with neon yarn and simply dropped it down, let it go a few feet and repeated. do you think I should tip the jig with anything? thanks
Ifishforfood said:i was also wondering, what does the bite feel like? is it a tap, or a slam? thanks
