If you're looking for something a little more subtle maybe than a bass jig, you might consider drop shotting a tube.
    Yeap. I don't know where you got your numbers but I believe them. The crawdad presentation has gotta be one of if not the most unused of an actual highly consumed food source. I know I'm guilty of not using it, but that is about to change.

      ...caught some monsters on this below the Chattooga DH...washdowns, I guess...?



      ...it's a job to throw on a flyrod, but ultralite spinning gear is manageable...

      Blessings!
