Basically...what do you like to throw in the slop?

We all know if it's sunny they will be burried under the stuff....but what if it's cloudy?

I still feel I have a better chance going in after them.. I throw a deitz rig, a semi pegged heavy texas rig with a tube on the business end!

A deitz rig huh? You making stuff up now bud smile

I agree with Mr. Dittrich. I would try going into the slop and looking for any little openings try throwing jigs, senkos, T-rigged worms in there and horse em out! If its cloudy before a front rolls in im usually not messing around in the slop but thats just my preferance I'm sure you will still find a few in there

CP- I been throwing what 'I call' a Deitz Rig for about 8 years now.. just been somewhat quiet about it.. I talked about it at a seminar this spring at Gander MTN and its really taken off..

Simply put.. its a Bobber stop, a very small glass sinker, tungston weight(usually 1/2 oz), a larger glass sinker and a Flipping tube. The bobber stop is then about 1" up the line from the first bead.. this way when you flip it into matt grass/thick weeds you can still shake it to get sound from the beadsd and sinkers, but the sinker still acts pegged so you can get the tube through the thick stuff...

when it comes to really every cover, i will use a Carolina Weight and put a snap shot on it, so the weight cant move. Then i will hook a tube, or creature bait.

anybody ever try a heavy weight on a drop shot? it's something i'd like to try, but don't get out enough. seems like if you set the drop long enough, you could keep a tube or something just under the slop.

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....  
    • i,ve been falsey accused of inproprieties!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Ken W, I have that book too. Before the internet it was really tough to find info. about sausage making. I never had luck getting a tangy flavor using Fermento. The sausage was very good though.
    • Jacks work very smooth, fresh grease and by hand feels fine for the amount of weight.  I think for the winter we'll just use the gas auger up and the hand drill down.  I don't want to sink another penny into these darn jacks if I can help it, should be swapping out by next year.  I may look into the gear reduction but I feel like trying to throw one of them on each of the jacks could add another 100 that could go toward electric.  leech if you ever stumble on that video post the link so I can see what hes doing different.  Works great on the tongue when it can pivot on the wheels but when lifting the full weight of the house at the back two jack points it just doesnt cut it.
