save the
splitshot and drift back
for stream trout.

if you anchoring, sometimes 4-6 ounces during the flow. i will stay at the helm, bump in and out, letting the crew fish close at times.
that trigger was caught on the old power line or another snag, not the light itself. some of the surounding water isn't that deep. you can fish with a few ounces.
sometimes the holes hold the fish, not the light.

be carefull out there.

looks sporty out there
was going for flounder, weather changed. time to anchor and pitch.
make lemonade.

but your looking at a 35-40' hole in front of 14'. with a swift tide, you wouldn't get near the bottom if you started letting out line now.:eek:
if your not getting stuck, your not close to the fish.

i just like to fish im allowed to catch them if i release them arent i? and who knows what else id catch. Also its something to do besides weeding through 80 flounder to get a keeper i think its the same almost.also figure with lead on line near slack tide will get bait down there. there r shallow waters all around flat top.you guys r trying to kill my fun wt heck....lol.and before yous say lead sinkers i was doing inline lead to sink bait down enough to float in around the rocks ,i caught 2 drum also doing this .WAS JUST WONDERING IF ANYONE HAS DONE IT IS ALL..ALLS COOL CHILL,LOL

i have never had a good trip around flat top.
maih maull really hasn't been good to me either.
but 14' and brandywine have been good. i haven't fished 14' in a few years, since it's on the dark side.
down south i have always done better. it's the rocks out and away. watch the sonar. tons of fish you can pitch to, but the bigger fish have been away. dropping down on the sides of the boulders. the bite is slower, but bigger. for this i am at the helm 100% of the time, watching the screen.
lots of work, but putting the boat on a 8' round boulder requires you at the helm. anchoring near the rocks is hairy. really hairy if the fish are facing the current.
i wasn't busting balls. just trying to say split shot won't get you down in a good current. sometimes you have a hard time keeping the boat over the rock. you want to drop in the zone in 2 seconds.
