i was on skunk fest but not dragging bottom like i should be since i hate snags. went back all drop shot now seeing fish again. i think drop shot makes fish active in a way. when i stick to it i always see fish start to chase some little bait fish around where im drop shotting. but its only after ive been draggin the spot for a lot longer then i would during springtime. the only drawback is you can snag after a retie and lose your full set up again so its a pain in the *** really. but it scores fish. anyways no lunks this winter for me. i dont have rain gear for bike yet or i wouldve been out the past couple days. anyways gl out there.
