Default Belmont help

Hey guys,

I'm looking for some tips on catching fish inside Belmont harbor. All catch and release, I fish everyday, bug hate the taste of fish, go figure.

I fish almost everyday in the suburbs and catch a lot of largemouth, but I know I need to change techniques with the deep water.

I only fish on the harbor side. Mainly throw swim baits and a few crank baits. I live in a high rise right across the street so I get out there a lot.

Any tips would be great : lures, bait, colors, time......anything!

Also, if anyone needs a fishing partner, it's pretty easy for me to get out there.

Thanks guys.

fast moving baits almost never produce for me.

try 4" kahlins grubs on 1/8 oz or 3/16 oz jig heads dragged real slow. will pick up nearly anything that is swimming in there.

other very popular presentations are small brown or green tubes, erie darters, small platics on drop shot about 1' above a weight. all of which are dragging/ small hops and fished very slow for bass....
