I call this mat fishing or garbage fishing. When the bass or relating to this type of structure, I love to fish the frog. I put christmas bells inside of my frogs and it adds weight and noise. The bass can follow it easier. I feel that Power Pro is a must over mono line. You can mix up your action. Sometimes move the frog in a steady pull, and other times start and stop. Any time there is a hole in the mat, be sure and slide across it. This will get you started on some excited fishing.Is there technics with these type of lures and is there anyone who has done slopping tell me in detail how how it is done?
