I haven't tried it yet, but it looks good. I saw a program by Bill Dance the other day where he was drifting in a river current. He used a bank sinker attached to a 6" leader off a 3-way swivel. His bait was on a 16" leader on the other eye of the 3-way. I'm gonna try it next time to the James. He was only using 4oz. sinkers on the James I think you would have to go much higher.Has any one ever tried fishing for blue cats with floats? How about drifting? Most of the guys I know including my self bottom fish. Next time I go out I'm thinking about trying it. Any tips I can get on rigging would be appreciated.
