When I fish down in the river I like to have my baitcasters set with the clickers on, especially at night when I'm trying to catch flatheads. I just love to be half asleep and one of my clickers just starts screaming. Dang that's exciting. What's best in the lakes? Just putting the rod in the holder and wait for it to bend over or what. I only use circle hooks now and it seems to me if you leave it alone they'll hook themselves.
