Where I grew up in the middleWhere I grew up in the middle of Virginia....I would go down to the rail road river trestle and put a piece of sliced cheese(1"x1" square) on a barbed hook with a bobber set at about 3-4' in depth....I would put the bobber in between the pilings in the middle of the river(22' deep) and just wait.....the bobber would slowly just start to sink.....and lo & behold....I would catch blues, flatheads, mud cats and other assorted fish!!! The hotter the day.....the better the cheese would work....just let it set out and dry in the sun....it would get hard and of course smell that much more pungent.
