I put the tip in the water while trolling it helps a bit.
I'll put a split shot up the line, it helps a bit, but they slide over the round split shot, maybe a square split shot would be better but i never seen one.
Any tips will help for sure, it's frustrating casting for surface weeds.
I try and cast for the clear lane, and bury the rod tip, but weed are just below the surface also.
h2o<---says any better tips on it.
