Which best describes your setup on a deep hole, or drop off?
A, B or C.
i like b and c. b if im fishing on bottom, c if im fishin a suspended rig
i you fish A and theres alot of current, you gotta fight it to.
Start with A, then let some rope out to slip into position B.
A: first let bait scent drift to fish (aggressive fish)
B: second finicky fish ( get it closer )
C: last but least bounce the bait in front of them ( to wake them up:smile2: )
A when water temp is above 60 degrees and an agressive bite.
B and C on cold water and a weak bite. Would probably utilize the trolling motor to hover on the structure.
Positions B and C would work better on a blue bird sky day when fish are holding tight as it would allow for a more precise presentation.
Like Doug said also, if your on straight line current all you have to do is let some rope out. A little more difficult than that on a lake with no current which is when we utilize our trolling motors anyhow
I'd normally go with B,but if the current was too strong or the water was really murky,I might use C.It seems easier to walk a bait through the hole using B,rather than fishing sraight down,as in C.With A,it'd be too hard to place the bait or fight the fish in current.But,that's just my opinion.
80% of the time i would go with plan B... My plan A always failoooh:
Lots of good advice here Dennis. My selection would depend on water temp, current, and bottom contour. I don't normally use plan B, plan A will do both if you adjust your weight to the current and walk or drift the bait to the fish using the current. I find this works well for Flathead when their hanging just off a ledge or drop off. Work the bait to them and then over the edge, only disadvantage you can only use one rod at a time with this method. Cold water or bluebird skies, plan C, as Nanner said you gotta' drop it on their heads and it's tough, boat positioning is critical and you have to have enough sinker weight to get it to the bottom right now, not later.
