Reminds me of an old experience when I was 14 years old re: sorta test. I fished anchored on a small wing dam on the Cedar River, fished with 2 rods(OK in Iowa). Both had the same larger split shot and hook, large shiner minnow for bait. I though I was fishing for walleyes, but couldn't keep the flatheads off of my lines. Interestingly, one rod accounted for 6 of the 7 fish caught. The only difference was the winning rod was spooled with 6 lb test mono, the loser with 8. I surmised the somewhat smaller dia 6 lb had a bit less water resistance and allowed the bait to be a little deeper in the water column. I though both baits were on/near the bottom, but...
