Thanks for the reply Donald. I fish with an old fishing buddy, in his boat, and limit the number of rods I put in the boat as a courtesy. Therefore, I need to rig one finesse rod only. Of course, I can always take the time while fishing to change rigs, but I am trying to decide which one to use if I only use one. Guess I could fish one trip with a drop shot, and the next trip with a shakey head, keep alternating for several trips, and settle on which has worked best. But am just curious to know if you guys on the forum prefer one over the other. Always helps to know the experience of others.
