What kind of lure do you use, what kind of hook, how long do you let it sit and when do you use this technique? Thanks.

i usually go for the owner off set drop shot type hooks, and i change them out when they are done with rust or corrosion. so usually every time i fish, unless they are on a head or jig, then when ever i feel they are done.

Senkos wacky style!
Owner Mosquito or other offset circle hook set up.
I like to have a pretty soft tip on the rod I'm using to help let the hook do its job.

I use Senko style sticks, Senko's can be pricey. Since these are semi soft they tear up or off the hook easily so I use an o-ring around the middle and just slide the hook under it. I catch a lot of bass and pike (go figure) this way so the o-ring gives it more life. Also most of the time I will weight one end with a finishing nail.

Senkos by far are my favorite dead stick bait. Cast it out and sit there, I've caught fish while eating a sandwich, lost the sandwich a few times too. I've let them sit as long as five grueling minutes, but my friends dad loves to throw it out and wait like bait fishing.

I've dead sticked suspending jerk baits as well. Pretty effective in cold clear water. Cast it out, get it to the right depth, give it a jerk and watch the line for a bump. My favored time to use this is actually in current channels with structure. Cast out, get it to depth and then free spool. The drag on the line will give it a little wiggle, but the current will take it right past the ambush points, fish would grab it and run.

Ahh! the mighty ol' dead stick. This is the way I go about it for "TROUT" Well based on the clearness of the water at times I will use a fluorocarbon leader followed by a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Owner mosquito hook and wacky rig a Trout King super floating worm (color of worm based on the time of day) and about 16" away I will use a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] or 1/32 split shot. At times I will add a secondary hook about 16" away from the previous hook to make my hunt a bit faster and to determine where the trout are located. I will normally use this technique on slow days. I let the dead stick sit anywhere from 5-10 min while I am busy jigging with my second rod. I randomly also spray scents on my plastics, that also helps out.
