  I fed the guts to my favorite cat named "Cat". Bonus!




I don't think Mr Ed had many cats growing up.

yes.  if they are getting hung, you need to go heavier to get your line more vertical.  should be able to feel the type of structure they could hang on and pull it right up and over it before its too late.  Only exception I can think of is maybe a suspended log or tree branch.

then again, if you're having luck with jigs & shot, stick with it.  the sensitivity you get from that set up is great for feeling takes.
I just like the bottom bouncers cause, no matter what the wind or drift is, you've got a way to keep the jig in the strike zone.  We use floating jig heads on them.
Gotcha. We are running 1/4 ounce jigs vertically and casting. Working well so far, but you do lose a lot. You are correct, you can feel a minnow's fart when running this setup.

I like this concept for running worm rigs tho

spork and WMTsun, since you are river fishing, have you entered the world of bottom bouncers?
Negative. Too easy to hang them up in the waterbody I fish. Ive tried them before.

Split shot is all I use

I figured bottom bouncers was a new hip sexual term.
