as a matter of course i have significantly more success w/live bait--while there is more a 'skill' factor w/artificial. i tend to use live (or at least 'real') bait, as i find its much more fun to go 'catching' instead of 'fishing.'

the hotmaps (fishing hot spots) card for the GPS has A LOT of underwater features marked, even classifying some as 'fish attracters.' you can also get them on paper. im also an avid believer in sun/moon calculations affecting fish activity as well as water temp. generally i have the most luck at dawn/dusk in temps significantly cooler than summer surface temps.

the humming bird helps a lot in finding bait balls.
happy catching!
