Actually we had hard time to hold bottom as drift was so fast with 5 knot. After we used the 24 oz Sanme jig, we could hold bottom. If you power drift, you can hold bottom with lighter jigs.Boatsmith said:Kil, how the heck do you hold bottom in 850'. I have tried 400' and not an easy feat?????
850 ft. off NC would have you in Gulf Stream current, the sea anchor would be of little help unless there was a South wind. It really rips out there. A bit of wind against current and a sock would be great, but a bit choppy. You just can't win sometimes.Boatsmith said:Thanks Kil, that is what we have done deep dropping in Florida. Only problem is you can rack up the hours doing this. Drift sock or sea anchor can help sometimes as well.
Can you tell me about these jigs you are using?
