Drifting worm harnesses or floating jig heads with minnows works great. Anchoring over them and vertical jigging them is good as well.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

I am talking about baits that you would use on shore. I have heard of a few good spots but I don't know what bait I should use for them.

Rappallas work good from shore. I like to use big creek minnis. Worms on a floating jighead.

Re: need some tips for pymatuning

From shore I've had good success with a 1/16 oz chartreuse jig (or the smallest jig you can feel the bottom with) with a chartreuse tube body and large minnow. The 4" black and gold rapala has always worked well for me too. By shore fishing I mean wading gravel bars. If you're going to sit on the bank and fish, the floating jig heads with large minnows or worms work well.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Noah Try this. Start with either a 1/4 or 1/2 ounce egg sinker. Run line through the hole. Pinch the smallest split shot you can get 12-16 inches up the line(towards the hook). Tie on hook of choice.Use nightcrawler for bait. Using worm blower(available any bait shop) inject worm with air. It will now float 12-16 inches off bottom. Cast from shore, bail open. When fish hits,let him run for a few seconds, then hit em.Works like a charm.. You can substitute minnow for worm....Good luck.
