This morning I found lots of rock feeding on the smallest minnows you've ever seen.

I threw everything in my bag, with no success. When I cast on the bank where the fish were feeding I could see minnows popping everywhere.

Any advice for this? Besides "buy minnows"? Lol

I am always surprised when large fish have keyed in on small baits, but it happens. Your first thought is, "Man they are biting those tiny things I know they are gonna love my nice big bait!" .....Not always the case. I've seen trout do that too.

Thanks trigger, I remember seeing the topwater trailing bait once. Oh well, time for another trip to the tackle store

The smallest thing I had was a lil fishie, but they didn't want that either

Besides what the others have mentioned, Walmart carries some prerigged small Storm swim baits (2") which I have done well with when they focus on those small baits. I hate when they get locked in on smaller bait!
