drift fishing

Recommended Posts

I fish taney about three or four times a year and have always had good luck drifting but have only used flat fish rigged with a flex-o-sinker. does anyone have any other ideas they are willing to share for drift fishing. i normally say in the trophy area but dont have a problem running to a better location.

we get down there once a year and love it, if you are fishing for food and some action try some power eggs from berkley(make sure your outta the trophy waters) on one of the taney drift rigs found at all the resorts down there. i use the single hook rigs not the trebles. if i remember right last year we tore em up on 2 bubble gum eggs on the hook and one white one threaded on the line about 1-3 inches up from the hook. we found it best to float from fall creek to downtown branson after the old r.v. park area the action kinda thinned out for us. also we found lil cleos to be decent when the water was running along the outside banks from fall creek down a lil ways. we tied off/anchored and fished different cover we seen along the way. not drift fishing but maybe something you might want to try. hope that helps some good luck!

It's hard to talk about drifting when there's not enough water to run right now...

Ever heard of Lead Master Tools?

I found these while fishing in Michigan for salmon/steelhead in the rivers there. You use lead coiled spools in different diameters, cut it to size and pinch a hole in one end for a snap swivel. They hardly ever get tangled or snagged.

I carry all the plyers and lead in the shop but haven't marketed them yet because of no generation.

Those are very popular in the NW Phil. Another thing you can do with hollow core is put a dropper of heavy mono and then pinch the lead on it. If it snags, it will pull off the dropper line.
