I have never done that, seems counter productive to me IMO, most guys I see do it spend more time untangling things then fishing. And the most important is 2 fold - 1 sitting in the right spot and 2 knowing how to fish it. I have found some great spots by lookin for new ones, give me a day and I will find 4-6 new spots that will fish for sure just by looking at them with the finder. That being said you never have as much confidence in a "new one" as you do the proven ones you hook 20+ a day out of.

So when your anchored in 15-30' of water....what size lead do you use most the time. Obviously the current will dictate this most the time......1oz, 1.5oz,2oz,3oz, 4oz??????.Thanks. Good luck,

I am not Paul so I hope I my response will be permitted.
My buddies and I do well off the boat and bank with a double spin-glo rig. If you are careful with casting you do not tangle and you have an additional lure to hook up on. One spot where we fish the inside double rig has the top spin glo only under the water about a foot and we do get an occasional fish up top. The strikes we get off the top glo tend to be vicious as they surface with it.

We will also run a 3.5 mag lip off a slider on the main line to act as a "diver" on a 18"-24" leader. We run multiple beads above and below on the main line. After the beads we run a bead chain swivel to a 3 foot leader to a single hook spin glo with prawn tail.

Just figured I would step in and get you some info on how to run a set up if you wanted too.

In time I may grow comfortable, past expieriences have taught me to be more careful on the water. For now, its lakes and trolling the shores of the willamette for bass. Its other dumb boaters that worry me.
