Thought I would ask my Missouri brothers to help me with a question that I had. My boat is set up to fish mainly on the Missouri River with the main rod holder at the back of the boat (4 holders) with 2 at the very front. I do this to anchor and then throw the bait downstream and can fish by myself if needed. However, from what I have read about drift fishing it seems that more people drift with the boat in a sideways drift and sometimes even employ a drift sock on the side of the boat. My question is how would you guys advise me to set up my boat to drift with my current setup so I could drift with my rods out of the back of the boat? Mainly what kind of trolling motor to add to my boat and if a drift sock would be necessary. I'm going to start drifting LOZ, Truman, and Mark Twain and try my luck. I had a great time earlier this summer even though we probably didn't drift exactly right. Also, can you use a drift sock while drifting with the rods out of the back of the boat? Hope this question makes sense, thanks in advance for any help.
