    How do you fish a slip sinker rig? Do you keep the line tight or somewhat slack? Do you keep the bail open or closed?

    I keep mine tight, have tried both, but prefer it to be tight, with the bail closed. Just had better luck this way. Have heard of guys doing it both ways though.

    I fish mine according to the weather and bait that I am using. For windy days I prefer slack line. For live bait, I use my clicker/bait feeder. For smaller cut bait, 3-6 inches, I like tight lines. For larger cut bait I like slack line, clicker are an open bail. These are just starting points I use and by no means a standard. I adjust my techniques, thhough out the day, according to the fish.

    I fish with a slight slack line to allow my live bait to swim,but not enough for my bait to get stuck under or in things

    That's is what I do, I just go by what the wind & Water Level (Tide) are through-out the day & go from there. :big_smile:

    Take it easy,

    I perfer a tight line with baitrunner or clicker on and that way if the fish picks up the bait and come to me, I can see that and set the hook

    I use to fish with a slack line and did a lot better than I do now using a tight line. That was when all I used was J hooks, now mostly Khales and circles, think I will go back to trying the slack line again and see if it picks up any better. Well 1 tight and 1 slack and see which produces best.
