I followed his instructions to the letter and wow, what a difference. The first fish I caught doin it his way I thought was just luck so I did it again and again and again and again. No it was not luck it worked almost everytime. Amazing. Sonar is nice to see what’s going g on down there but you still need the correct technique.
Great point. When I was young I never used to ask the fellows at lakefront bait shops or whatever for their advice on fishing "their" lakes, even used to roll my eyes whenever one of my companions did, but once I started listening to those guys I quickly discovered they were generally passing out some pretty good advice!
