I've been using a dead stick while jigging. Wondering what systems work best. Plain hook and minnow. Adding beads. Using a small jig or some other flash? Thanx for your response.
Rigging dead stick
Drop shot tied with a Palomar knot and a string of split shot anchoring the bait just above the bottom works best. I have a noodle rod with 2# test and a small light wire fly hook that has been hot for me this winter. Minnow, waxies, wigglers, or a minnow head are all good bait options.
