Cast up current to 11:00, quickly take out the slack and give the rod a low sideways sweep to get the darter to dig in. Keeping the retrieve steady, you'll feel the darted pulsing, bring the rod around so the butt is between your legs and the tip is pointed to the lure and is at just below a 45 degree angle.
A good triggering move is to raise the tip just past 45 degrees when the plug hits the 2:00 position making it jump forward and pulse a bit harder. Once it's at 3:00 or nearing other fishermen, reel it in and cast out again.

Pay attention to the timing and location of the guys in the lineup around you. You all want to be in sync to avoid tangles and standing out there at about the same distance to avoid hooking each other in the leg at the end of the sweep.out
