Let me know if you try it. My fingers got smashed in a steel door thanks to Irma and I've been out of fishing commission since as it's my right hand. I'm starting to worry about one of them. At best I think I'm going to lose 2 fingernails.
I didn't come up with that rig. I was using Google Images looking at pictures of how to tie the drop shot hook so it stays vertical and saw a few rigged that way. They called it the "shaky drop". Since then I've also seem the drop shot tied above a jig. I haven't tried that yet, but would like to.
What really stinks is my closest and favorite fishing spot I can't use any of these techniques in. The lake has so much thick grass that you can't fish anything on the bottom. Any deep diving lures you can pretty much kiss goodbye also. Or use heavy braid so you don't loose them, but then you end up with 4 pounds of grass dragging back to you. No finesse fishing there....it's all about a reaction bite.
