Old school technique and it works as you've found out. I remember reading a old FS article describing this and tried it one day using a 2" Zara Spook topwater and a crappie jig trailer. The kid outfished 4 other boats that decided to anchor by us. T'was great, it's something to remember on those slow days.

Sounds worth a try but if they are hitting the top dog why not just fish it. LOL

thats awesome! i knew it was a good idea and i was pretty sure someone else had to have thought of trying this also.

i have had the same experience with boats driving by see poles bent over so they try to come anchor up next to you to get a share of teh action. and they cant get a bite and we would still be tearin em up. too funny. dont see why some people do that. the whole ocean to fish and you see one boat doin good on one little spot and you want to stop. dont make no sense.

that pisses me off when they do that. they always are like what are you using. do you have an extra. how do you work it. just because im being friendly to you because you don't know how to catch doesn't mean you can irritate the crap out of me and scare the fish away. there is plenty of fish all over you don't have to right next to me.

Guys, the kid was so excited to be catching two fish at a time that he had to show them to every boat that passed within 1/4 mi of us. I'm guessing that after we released 30 fish, one of the other boats started tossing the same setup. No joy for them tho. These were all fish in the 12-14 in range and they wanted small stuff.
Lesson here: MATCH THE HATCH. And as for the comment about just using a topwater, these guys were making halfhearted swipes at the Zara Puppy. Once the trailer went on, it was a feeding frenzy.
