Hi guys,

Im still fairly new to bottom bouncing. I've got my gear outfitted right (I bought my set up from Berry's and they outfitted it for me). What Im having trouble with the most is Im constantly snagging. How do I stop this or limit it? (not sure if this help, but Iam casting up stream as well). Help is appreciated it, Cheers!

don't cast ustream, it coils your line so that betty stops bouncing and snags

Thanx for the tip Chinooker!

Is it best to cast straight out or downstream?

straight out, or just slightly upstream
