    What exactly is live lining? Are you drifting, anchored? What weight, barrel sinker or fish finder rig. I usually just fish the bottom and i am looking for other methods. Thanks in advance for any help...........

    I know that bait presentation can vary all over the map... but whats a general size for a mac/pogey/shad that I should stay under? I guess Macs are a little more slender so they can be longer, but pogeys and shad get pretty wide. Any advice/tips would be appreciated.

    Was wondering if anybody does this and how to rig the spot or perch? I have heard alot about this in the Bay area in MD and was thinking of giving it a try.

    1) how? it through the mouth like how you live line an eel? Or behind the dorsal fin? If it's the latter if someone could explain that would be great! 2) when jigging for Macks how do you know they are around....should I be looking for birds? Thanks guys!! cadicted.gif
