WHEN & WHERE: It is a presentation that you can use to get a few extra bites, especially in the winter on the bottom. Target long sloping points.
TIP: This is good for spotted bass lakes and gives a different action than a dart head or shakey head would. It is a good presentation when the fish aren’t very active and they don’t want to put too much effort into getting a meal. Oxblood Light is a good color
WHAT: I use a 6 “
Robo fat worm with a 1/4
oz dart head and 8 lb test. I rig this one of two ways, either with an open hook or Texas-rigged.
WHEN&WHERE: I use the open hook when there are no rocks or smaller rocks that are no bigger than the size of silver dollars. I make longer casts and drag along the bottom, letting the tail kick up to imitate the look of a crawdad. An open
hook will tend to get more bites, but I use a Texas- rig for rockier locations to avoid getting hung up. I cast out and work it back using a drag, pause, shake retrieve. I have found that longer pauses tend to get bigger fish. It is a year round technique.
