I was fishing down stream from the belle Isle bridge Sunday and broke my shank just down from the eye loop. Lost 3 spoons and my weight.:rant: At least I didn't have 3 Raps on. That would have been a :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant: . I make ny own weights out of scrap material so that didn't cost me anything.

I find that to be totally untrue. I caught lots of fish, and dont know a single person who DRAGS the bottom.

I call it control of presentation.:D

I think I know what you meant by dragging the bottom. Ticking the top of the rocks, and hardly moving your arm. Isnt it crazy how the slightest movements will get you over rocks and down little valleys without hardly moving? Once you get comfortably on the bottom all the control goes to your fingers. I see alot of guyd out there who look like they are running a marathon, up down up down up down, just pounding away.

I snagged a brand new weight, 2 #11 Rapalas and a Shank a month ago. Well.... I used the shank that I had snagged and had it break the second clevis down from the top.

It I ever snag another rig, I will keep the beads and clevis's to make another shank and throw the rest away. Did not break one lip since I started running 10 and 20 foot leads so I can say it was a good year for me,
