When using a bucktail in the back bays for weaks or stripers do you always pick a weight that will bounce the bottom? Are there times that it is better to have the bucktail up off the bottom? Do you use the same technique for weakies and stripers? Do you use a bucktail and a finess the same way. When I use a bucktail or finess I will make a long cast let the bucktail or finess sink a few seconds to the bottom then bounce my rod tip twice reel about 3 revolutions and bounce the rod tip again until it's close to the boat. Some times If I am drifting in a deep channel I will jig the bucktail or finess up and down off the bottom right under the boat. Are these proper techniques??
