put your bait on the BOTTOM ....... with a fishfinder rig so it can run freely

braid or 20 lb test is fine. ... AND like Brian said go with a live herring... just get a sabiki rig and cast from shore and you'll catch em

there are tons of shore spots north of the preserve along the bike path .... all in prime fish waters
