    Modifying your casting tackle

    I just thought that I would ask and perhaps learn something that would improve my casting next year. I expect that you are all experts and very opinionated, so this could be quite interesting.

    For example, do any of you tweak or modify your line, leader, rod or reel in a special way so that you will get the MAXIMUM response when:

    - WALKING THE DOG ON THE SURFACE - Do you have a special way of increasing the side to side motion?

    - USING A GLIDE BAIT - Do you have a special way of increasing the swing length?


    :D

    Couple of things.

    Change rear hook on my Jackpots from a 4/0 to a 3/0 wire round bend.


    Using a single strand leader with no snap or swivel only joining the leader to the lure with a split ring.

    Using your dominate hand to work the bait.
