Fish can often
be found around an area where the bottom content changes.
In this case the content goes from rip rap to clay.
Notice the stair-step slope of the clay. The birds of
prey in the picture also indicate the area may hold
bait or other fish.
Game fish are
always cruising this bank looking for an easy meal.
The bait fish will dart into the rocks for cover when
they are threatened so fishing the rocks is always a
good choice. Many fishermen like to bounce small jigs
down the slope of the clay. Crank baits, Spinners, or
anything that resembles bait fish would be a good choice
here. Depending on the conditions, the game fish will
either be right at the waters edge or down near the
bottom of the slope. Unless the fish are very active,
you will often have to get your lure to the depth where
they are holding for the time or they wont hit it. Many
decent fish are caught from the area where the two types
of bottom content meet.
