    I wanna fish the bottom with a 3-way swivel and I don't know how to get my bait to stay out of the grassy bottom of the lake. I considered using a fellow brothers idea and using a rattling bobber on the line for added attraction and to keep it up but I don't know if it will work. Any Ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

    Welcome to the BOC Jim! You can try a cork bobber on the leader about 4-5" from the hook, this doesn't seem to bother the cats and works well at keeping your bait up off the bottom. Or you could try a slip-bobber rig and set the bobber knot to keep the bait at foot of two above the grass.
    Hope this helps!
