Used to catch these on topwater jerk baits in the lake behind the rifle range I worked at on Dam Neck. Explosive hits that would scare the crap out of you if you weren't paying attention. Caught some bigguns out of there. Nasty critters with some nastier teeth, but one heck of a fight.
i catch them on most everything,the bait of choice is a big shiner or baby carp on a fishfinder rig!seem to catch alot of them catfishing,and as the previous posts say bass fishing,when the carp spawn,THEY ARE BY FAR THE BEST BAIT IN THE WATER !!
