(Nov. 10, 2006 - Kennesaw, GA.,)... If I’m fishing a spinnerbait, chances are I’m fishing the shallows, no more than 5 feet deep. If you’re fishing spinner bait along the bushes, along lay down trees or stumps, make sure the spinner bait hits the object so you might get a reaction bite. Itâ€™s very important not to cast away from the cover. Just make sure you hit the stump, then you will catch more and you get more bites.
