And sometimes they play aggressive, push me to fold. If I keep calling with overcard, usually I will find they have one sm pair.
They are not easy to make profit, you lose one big meanwhilet only can earn less each time.
They are that stupid:

The thing to remember that even though all fish are stupid, they are not all stupid in the same way
. This is where observation is key. There was another player at the table playing 45/2 who would c/c with overs, any pair or draw. I'd never take this line against him with bottom pair. But with the Villain in the hh, he was the "if they check to me I have to bet" type that would fold to pretty much any resistance.
You don't have to be a nit, you just have to really be paying attention if you want to play properly post flop against fish. Make notes on what kinds of hands they like to call with / raise with / what boards they fold to. Once you get a handle on that, then it's easy to exploit them when you get them isolated.
