OK, not dynamite, just a suggestion.

What types of fish are they?

Carp?  Mullet?  White perch?

If so, your chances of chatching the carp and mullet are from bad to worse.

I would suggest doing the following:

1.  Purchase a loaf of white bread and tear up some slices and throw them into the water. If the bream start to hit the bread slices then you have a good food base for the bass, crappie and catfish.

2.  Using a small #6 gold hook and a bobber, try to catch the fish hitting the bread to see exactly what they are by rolling a small piece of white bread into a tight ball and putting it on your hook.  Fish it about 12 to 18 inches deep.

3.  If you catch bream then you can try your luck fishing for bass with the appropriate bait, like a white jig, wacky worm Senko, wacky worm Zoom finesse worm, crankbait, spinnerbait, Chatterbait, etc.

4.  If no bass bites, then you can fish for catfish or the bluegills or bream or white pearch with the rest of your white bread or using catfish bait.

Let us know what you find.
