  4. Sorry, a real basic two hook bait rig is fine - small hooks like #2 or #4. For me that's an overhand loop at the end of my leader then two good sized dropper loops tied about a foot apart, the first one a few inches above the sinker. Tighten them up well - then clip one leg of each dropper loop near the knot. You now have to 'leaders' to snell yer hooks on That's my ghetto high-low rig TimS
  5. Steve, chum with some crushed up clams/clam shells - they get worked up and will literally eat anything Squid would be my first choice...stays on better than worms and is much, much cheaper TimS

  8. It used to be one of the single most under utilized pieces of water in the northeast...listening to people complain about the guys who remember it that way is rich TimS
  9. Greetings fellow Tim It depends on the size of the outfit, length of the butt, the circumstances and even the lures you are throwing. Rods with short butts are usually fished one handed with the reel foot between either your pointer and middle finger - or middle finger and ring finger...whichever is more comfortable for you. In the course of a long trip I'll alternate between those two positions. You can also let the rod butt come up underneath your forearm for additional leverage or support if necessary. If an outfit isn't comfortable to hold this way it's going to be less than ideal for fishing lures for fish less than 10# Longer butt rods, big waves, big lures...those are the times you'll see guys put the butt between their thighs...and that's when you'll see their rod hand up above the reel on the fore grip. Can't imagine you'd need that much stick to catch fish that rarely get to 10#...the conditions might dictate needing more rod to get over waves. Fish under 10# and smaller lures I'd be fishing along the lines of an 8 1/2' - 9 1/2' steelhead/salmon type rod - something light that fishes up to 1 1/2oz but a short butt that can easily be fished with one hand. Hope this helps TimS
