Sort of.
It means gently touching your index finger to the rim of the spool to slow the line and straighten the plug near the end of the cast.

Most of my swimmers seem to be ok with fouling. If I do run into one that is a problem I will try feathering it. Thanks Sudsy.

I do do the jerk it when one is tangled. I don't try to fish it slow as one poster posted. Well to make it look like a wounded prey. As by doing this you now have your line wrapped around a hook and just asking for a break off if you get a large fish or even just one with sharp teeth. This has happened with a musky a while back and have vowed not to do it again. Also you have your leader chaffing against the hook.

I had the same issue but I ended up taking the front treble (I know what your thinking, that's where they hit it) but it also has a big treble in the middle of the plug and the single hook trailer at end...Also when you fish those things (at least for me) I always fish them ssssslllllllooooooowwww as hell and that seems to do the trick...Almost like a popper, and hardly ever under the surface...
