But sometimes the fish can sec too much for the fisherman's own good. Ultra-clear waters pose a problem for the angler, since the victim may be able to look over the whole diabolical set-up — bait, hook, and leader. That's a' little too "sporting". Under such circumstances,, thc only answer is to switch to light taekle that escapes detection, and use strut egy that conforms to feeding habits. Light spinning gear is ideal, but the use ofi longw lightweight leaders can) make all types of regular tackle suitable for the task. Select tiny spinners or midget trolling spoons. Pick the runts out of the minnow bucket and use them first. Generally, you'll do your best during th« early morning hours and again at Later in thc evening, change to night fishing tactics. But alway fish slow. This applies whether you're casting right next to the bank or bottom -dumping in the depths. Clear water fishing is demanding, but it provides a new kind of challenge and can produce excellent results. If ynu can fool 'cm, you can catch 'em.
