I just started bass fishing again, after laying off since last spring. I got one bite yesterday, snagged one today, but my line popped before I could even start realling him in. He hit hard, and I'm guessing there was a bad place in the line, because I barely pulled back on it. Anyway my question is why do I not have any luck with shiners. I've tried them a few times in this lake and I've never caught a fish using them. I don't even remember if I've gotten a bite off of them. Just doing a cast and retrieve with basic plastic worms works great. I don't work it any, just like I said, cast and retrieve. You'd think having a live bait would work better. Any ideas?
