1. Long Drifts: Study wind and tide to determine the drifts trajectory. This may be in an area with lots of birds hovering, baitfish marks on the finder, or slicks associated with bait. Blind casting in open water is a numbers game. The more casts you make = the more commotion in your area = more fish in your area.
2. Drifting: Avoid running over the area that you want to fish in order to position your drift.
3. Tip: If there is more than one angler casting. Each angler should be using a different lure to more quickly “crack the code".
