What's your least favorite technique?

Recommended Posts

I don't mean your least productive, although that may well be the case with most.

Mine is the dropshot. It's not that I don't have confidence in this method. It's just that I find it the most boring way to fish. I'd almost rather watch the grass grow than fish a dropshot rig.

Cheers,

GK

That is a tough one.  It would be between a carolina rig or spoons.

both work good and have thier place but I hate, absolutely hate fishing them.

My least favorite is probably the C-rig, which I avoid like the plague.

About 30 years ago I fished carolina-rigs to death, probably before they had a name.

I used them in the ocean for striped bass with 1 and 2 oz egg sinkers.

I'd imagine I'm just plain sick of rigging all those swivels and leaders, though they certainly have their place.

Spinner baits( never use them)  and C rig which I use if Im catching a lot and start seeing what else will work that I dont normally use  You need too much patience with c rigging and I dont have that much :-?

spinnerbaits and crankbaits for me.  Years ago I enjoyed both but got burned out on them...

I'll still fish them if I "have to" but only then. ...lol

C-rig, just feel intimidated by it so it's not really my least favorite, just have not really given it a chance.

I think I will give it a go next season....it would be a great member challenge for me.

I'D HAVE TO SAY CAROLINA RIG. I GET TOO ANTSY JUST STANDING THERE WAITING FOR THE FISH TO HIT. I NEED TO KEEP MY HANDS BUSY.

WHEN I DO CAROLINA RIG, I FIND MYSELF PUTTING THE ROD IN THE ROD HOLDER AND PICKING UP A CRANKBAIT OR SPINNERBAIT AND TOSSING IT. AND THEN I FINALLY GET A HIT ON THE CAROLINA RIG AND MISS IT.

I may sound like a dork but I don't think that there are any techniques that I don't like.  If I had to pick one out I would say ripping a jerkbait.  I love twitching but I don't like to rip em.

Senko's

Fer sure I'll fish em.  But I would rather be fishing something else.

I thought I was alone! I can't stand them either, but they sure catch fish.

i have a love hate relationship with the senko. i love it if its what i hypothesize as being the most productive bait. but i hate it when its my last resort bait.

It's gotta be live bait and float.  To dang boring, and virtually no challenge.  I don't even know if it is recognised as a serious technique.  Maybe big shiners down south, but not in Jersey.

Deep cranking.  Seems to where me out and not a lot of huge success there.

I hate anything that wont catch me fish....and I only seem to catch fish with my confidence techniques.

Therefore, I would say jigs, which I am working on. Crankbaits, which I need to force myself to work on, and any type of finesse fishing. I know these are big fish catchers for a lot of guys, but I haven't given them the time to develop properly. That should all change in a few months....

I am not a fan of the dropshot or the c-rig. I just think I haven't been in a situation for the dropshot to really shine yet, but both rigs are extremely boring rigs to me. Painfully slow fishing it seems to me most of the time.
