    I'm using fish eggs and I would be interested in getting meal worms but how do you get them to sink

    He says he's fishing the bottom (or should be) but it appears that he's throwing a weightless mealworm. Am I missing something?

    You may have answered this question, but what brand of 2 lb. fluoro do you prefer? Again, thanks for all the great information.

    I've found using spoons or spinners will help weed out the little ones, less strikes, but bigger fish.

    Great video, Matt. Thanks.
    I notice that you impart a slight jigging action to your line as you follow your drift. Could you explain why you do that. I ask because a natural wouldn't be darting up and then drifting down the current periodically.

    I just started fishing last fall, amazed by this technique. This video convinced me to go light… Lightest gone with is 4lb. test mono and caught 23inch river rainbow trout. Since it's winter here right now, lakes are frozen. Will this work on ponds and lakes?

    I just started going after steal head and big browns in northern michigan using spinners. do you think 2lb would be sufficient or should I jump up to 4 or 6 or even using it as leader with heavier line? I'm new to this type of fishing so any info would help seeing i don't want to lose any if possible…

    This past weekend my splitshots kept sliding down my 2lb test line to the hook, very frustrating. Water Gremlins PSS-7 is the only size on the bag. Any clues?

    Did you not use a float in this video or were you just using a hook and worm? Sorry if this seems kind of stupid, I'm quite new to fishing 🙂
