I rarely drift, even though I know it is a good way to target cats. I anchor and toss out the rejects from when I cut my bait up. If they are there I will usually have a rod go down before I can get them all set out.
No roll sinkers, quality swivel, circle hook of choice, good line and leader, and get to fishin'.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!
