Can someone who knows what they are doing just take me through how they would fish the area(if you know it)?
never fished down there but the idea is the same ..... live or chunk herring right off the bottom
if you're drifting keep the bait 2-3 feet off the bottom and adjust it as you drift
on the hook put your bait right on the bottom .... and change it regularly
when they hit give em a good 10 seconds then set the hook
