I have done all of my fishing in saltwater so know nothing about how to rig up to cast a line in any of the local lakes. I have a bit of time on my hands at the moment and was thinking of sitting on one of the lakes for a couple of hours every now and again. It gets me out of the house and what I catch is not important.
When saltwater fishing, depending on the type I am doing, if using bait I generally use a running rig (with the sinker either above or below the swivel), a pasternoster rig with one or two droppers or a ganged array. What should I be doing around here?
For casting lures I usually just attach them with a loop giving them free action. Can I do the same here?
What about float rigs? Are they worthwhile?
Any advice from Riotanglers?
