I have been reading my fishing magazines over and over lately for the lack of anything better to do and learning about this great Western lake idea of drop-shotting. But from what I have heard its illegal in Michigan to have a weight tied to the end of your line with a hook above it. I hear theres a way around it by tying a certain length a line, say a foot off of your main line then have your hook off of this. But doesn't change the effectiveness of the presentation? I was just curious why the DNR wouldn't consider changing the law if its for this intent, I know they are protecting the salmon. But have you seen the size hooks theses guys use, you couldn't snag a gobi. Never drop-shotted before, maybe this technique isn't useful in the current of Clair and Erie and the rivers, I don't know. Just wanted your opinions. Can you legally do it in Canada and if you have is it effective? Thanks.
