"I tie on a size 10 hook and split shot--or sometimes a 1⁄32-ounce jighead or Flea-Fly--and tip it with a waxworm." Dean likes the heavy line because it allows him to bend the tiny hooks and free them when snagged, and if you're doing this right, he says, you'll get snagged every few minutes. "The key to this is to control your drop," he notes. "That bait sinks very slowly, so you have to keep your line taut and watch it constantly for a strike. Ease it down next to one piece of cover, hold it there for 20 or 30 seconds, then pull it out and drop it next to another." If you see that line twitch or move, stick it.
