Hey Kip:
I thought you might be able to use this rig on some of the shallow lakes with cover in your area. I haven't tried it yet but it makes sense to attract the bass on the "drop". Carter and I enjoyed the trip and we received your blog and photos. See you next year maybe!! Good fishing to you my friend. Find attached a photo of some striper caught at Pickwick and a stringer of trout caught on July 04 at the White River in AR.
