Anyone read this article about John Murray's techniques? I apologize if you all have already talked about this - I've been a little busy climbing walls (JACK!) - just refer me to the thread. If not, then what are your thoughts about the 40'+ bass? I've been using spoons and a couple other things. I'm still very much a beginner and this is the first real winter fishing I've tried out. So tell me, is anyone using the jigs or dropshot in that depth? And how are you doing?

Del, on the ds, what distance is your weight from the hook? What # line are you using? When you get them that deep, what's the best way to bring them up so as not end up killing the fish? BTW, I need some more weights!

the distance verys for me from 4" -12" between hook and weight.

There is no safe way to bring them up from that depth, if your going to fish that deep expect casualities. if you dont want them to die dont fish that deep(not all will die) but the chance of them dieing are alot more.

I use 4lb and 6 lb floroclear for all my dropshotting.
I tried the fire line but not happy with it as of yet so I took it off. Da use's it and likes it.

One, kind of forgotten, technique we used for years for fishing deep is using what we called 1 ton (1 ounce) jigs. We used to dress the jig with a Garland Spider skirt and a twin tail grub in either smoke or root beer colors. We would free spool the jig to the bottom and keep in contact with the structure with very suttle lifts and drops. With mono it was mostly a light pressure bite, but with my 14/6 Fireline, I usually felt a tap. Yamamoto spider rigs would work outstanding on the 1 ton jigs. ......Art

We all know spider jigs dont work! 8)

The one ton jig banging technique will still put them in the boat!
