S_MAN has told me some of the drifting basics to get me started. I was looking for some more ideas/insight on how to drift lakes. I have a small jon-boat with a gas motor and a 30 pound electric troller. I have stout frame mounted rod holders welded out of 1/2" material, and a bucket drift sock. I'm targeting channels for now but want to hit Salt Fork this year for flats. The lakes/resevoirs I will be drifting are pretty shallow all under 20 feet. I know tactics will be a little different for lakes than drifting rivers (prolly wont need the drift sock much). I want to cover some water and learn more about the structure with my fish finder. I have circle hooks ready to go, and cut/live bait available. I have drifted Erie for walleye but this is a little different. I'm new to drifting whats your tried and true advise? Rigs, bait presentation,bait preference,speed, anything you think will help. Thanks Again. CPR will be practiced!
