sometimes i'd use a wooden stick to poke around with , the spot i checked wasn't that deep with silt though but was bottles hiding in the sandy bottom , i'd often find stuff that way

but depends on the location and what % chance you honestly think there is old bottles there , the spot i checked was an old dock near an old store/hotel so % chance very high

if its some random lake and nothing historical nearby i'd say chance of old bottles being there is rather low %
I am not expecting anything pre-1900, but figure there may be some neat soda bottles around the boat launch and oldest homes on the lake.


It's a pretty small lake, average depth is 20-ish ft. (Weird topography! 5ft then boom! 60ft!) Lots of logging history in the area.

On days like today, with crazy wind and waves that reduce visibility to nonexistent, you can still do this though...

Indeed.
I think it was a cutthroat? Zero rainbow on him.

Been catching tons of rainbows, cutthroat and large mouth bass, a few perch and one crazy big bluegill.
All with a single lure!

The cutthroat fight the best, and the bass hit the hardest.

definitely only be bottles in places where there had been human activity , but can sometimes be hard to tell where that occured as people might of camped or had picnics in random places

boat launches and docks are often the easiest and best spots to look
