    At Santee I use a 1 3/4 oz pencil weight with a 3 foot leader. I put a 2 1/2" cigar float 4" abobe the bait. I use a 8/0 circle hook. Let them go all the way to the bottom and run out a little ways. If you have no wind use the trolling motor. GOOD LUCK! FISHHUNTER

    If you use the rig that he has described you will put fish in the boat. Good luck and loaded rods!!
