How are the majority of your fish being caught? Do you usually get bit on the drop? On the retrieve? Do you dead stick and wait for the hit? Are you jigging?

Have you thought about your main technique and what pattern is producing fish for you the most?

This winter fishing for trout it has been jigging a split shot trout worm, but dead sticking that same worm on a slow troll has also been productive. Last Spring and summer at Perris it was pretty much dead stick/slow troll of a super Duper to catch BG, RE, and LMB. My shoulders are shot so continuous casting is not for me. I will try any and all things to find the pattern.

All depends on what season it is...... Fall into winter a really slow slow retrieve an dead stick. Spring into summer same as winter jus mabey a tad faster n summer med to fast retrieve with sudden twitchs n stops gets em goin. But topwater year round is my choice Thumbs Up

Depends on the time of year, the species of fish, and location. Usually high pressured park lakes require more often than not a slower presentation, big impoundments, not so much, this would be for LMB's. I don't fish for trout or kittys. Blue gill would be a dead stick, as they really don't chase food that much, crappy could be jigging or retrieve.

Salt water bass, can be jigging, retrieve, and deadsticking, again depending on the circumstances.

In the Salt Curly tail slow to fast retireve, and fluks Dropshot for me, but it all depends on the mode of the fish, so mix it up till you find what they are looking is the best bet I think. I myself would like to learn jigging better. study

Depends. Fishing for spotties near pylons/boat docks....mostly on the drop. BUT, i noticed that during the colder months i had fewer bites on the drop than during warmer months. Fishing the eel grass i mainly get but on the retrieve but i have nights wheb i habe to pop the bait up to get bit on the drop.

Lately ive been doing a bunch of freshwater fishing....pitching into some nasty structure. Ive cause almost all of ny bass on the drop with a few exceptions. I feel like you are getting a reaction bite when your bait is dropping...the fish see an easy meal and take it before its too late. Once the bait is in the strike zone and you work it back you're giving the fish a better chance to inspect it.
