The marks are on my braid main line and if I break off it's my flouro leader thus not affecting my marks. ......Art

Crappie Questions / Re: How to fish when "Lite Bite"
« on: January 01, 2018, 01:17 PM »
I credit my deep water light bite success to my using a 1/8th (or less) ounce drop-shot weight. If I lift on it and there is any light pressure at all I set. If there is nothing there I simply lower I back down. The other important thing is to have the line in your pole holding finger at all times. Works for me. .....Art

I beg to differ with you Mac, drop-shotting is not at all the same as spider-rigging! My drop-shot rig is the same as my bass drop-shot set-up. I use a openfaced spinning rod with 8 lb. hi-vis Berkley Fireline as the main line and a 6 lb. fluorocarbon leader. I use a #4 Gamakatsu drop-shot hook 18 to 24 inches above a 1/8th ounce drop-shot weight. The hook is then tipped with a minnow. ....Art

FYI:  My next door neighbors, Terry and Cheri, left here today at 11 a.m. got to San Carlos, after getting all their permits, started fishing a 1:30. They quit fishing at 5 with their 50 crappie limits. They caught them casting a 1/16th oz jig with JD in very shallow water. Their still out there cleaning them! ......Art
