Default Fishing From Shore-Bottom Or Off Bottom

When fishing from shore, should I fish on the bottom or off the
bottom with Chicken liver,nightcrawlers,and dip bait?
The old railroad pond has a mud bottom. Thank you for info.

if fishing a pond I would start with a slip float and let the wind move it around.the more movement the more area you will cover.what features are at this pond?

if your dealing with a med bottom try to suspend your bait a few inches of the bottom with something colorful... cats can smell and see

if there's isn't a strong current, i like to throw one on the bottom and leave one dangling off a big ole bobber. technically i should do this until i get a bite on one then switch the other, but i tend to leave one on the bottom and one off, just in case. both work fine for chicken livers.
