Hmmmm maybe those fish would bite a jig fished properly. If you can see the fish then they may already know your there. If you add visible leader . to big of a bait profile, the wrong/to much scent , to much lead, wrong color yada yada it can become frustrating. Next time you can see fish try fishing smaller baits without scent, jigs under a float, or a single corky and a split shot. Good luck next time , and thanks for the report.l

I will go with you some time aka trouble. How is this Friday looking for you?Try a variety of spinners. I know people that fish that river exclusively with spinners. Spoons might work too!

I'm hitting the Wilson after work tomorrow evening but I probably won't even be on the water until 5:15 or so. It's my only chance to fish for a little while...

Just got back from the Wilson. I only had a few hours to fish, so I hit that stretch of deep holes right at MM 21. First I tried eggs and yarn under a bobber and then switched to drifting. When those didn't work, I went with a pink Blue Fox Spinner. Unfortunately I came home empty handed. Not even a nibble.

Good luck to you guys tomorrow. Hope you fare better than I did.
