I riged up worm on a jig and a weight to get me out there, got some nibbles but missed what ever was biting, probably small bass, the people next to me were doing real well and I noticed the had r?w or r/y tube jigs, 2 per line with a weight at the bottom, no bait.
I didn't have what they had on exactically so afte an hr or so of no crappie, I rigged up as close as I could and bamm got a crappie and then another, but not nearly as regular as they were. Like about 20 to my 2. It was like if I didn't detect a bite as the jigs went through the water column I was out of luck. Is this normal?
Later on after those people left and their friend who came before they left (spot saving technique) I saw a young man catching 3 quickly using a bobber and worm. So I moved over there and rigged a jig on a bobber and stared hitting them almost every cast. I was down abot 2-3" below the bobber. Is this the better way?
I came home with plenty to clean and eat, but would rather have not had the 2-3 hr slow time. Share some thoughts, thanks
