Shad. I mainly use it when I feel the fish need a little extra incentive to bite. I've had some times where the fish were there but wouldn't bite & the slobber helped me get a few in.
Yup, I've had this scenario countless times. Most often Richie will be back boating me and I question him. He just hands me the slobber and I start catching. I get to multi tasking so much sometimes I forget it.
Is it needed 24/7? No. Is it priceless during a tough bite when you can see them on your graph but they're winning the stare down contest? You bet!
