Tips:

1. Cast towards sipping fish, close reel bail, allow bait to sink while paying close attention to the line for signs of a light tap.

2. After lure drops through strike zone, slowly reel towards surface.

3. Repeat the drop method, allowing the lure to sink on a tight line while looking for any signs of a bite on the drop.
