Ha! Being a bass guy, I sometimes forget folks fish for other things! Thanks for the great article PB!
And, Wow, if that was a "beginners guide", I can't imagine what his advanced techniques would be. Skipping a fluke in the space between a moored boat and the dock is a little tricky. And fishing it Wacky Style sounds tricky as well. I thought the darting motion it gets when rigged Texas style, like BB's pic above, is what triggers the strikes. I suppose you'd use the same hook for Wacky and Nose Rigging though. I just might give them both a try the next time I'm out.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
