Bridge Piling

About Us
Site Map

Fish will often congregate in the eddy created by a bridge piling if there is current present. The trick here is to get a bait under the bridge so it drifts toward the waiting fish. Dropping a jig or other lure right on top of the fish will not do the trick in most cases unless you are using live bait. Structure Library - Bridge Piling
Live bait or anything that will sink and drift toward a fish will work here. Remember that the fish may run away from you and cause your line to rub against the bridge piling. Use the appropriate line that can withstand that kind of abuse. Also remember that the bottom around many pilings is uneven and may contain rocks, broken concrete, metal, and other debris that your bait can get hung up in.
