This feel is about how heavy the cover is that you pitch your bait into. I fish on slack line. Pitch the bait in beside the cover first to the left, right and lastly in the middle of the bush. Slack line allows the bait to fall straight down and not pull away from the cover. Trying to fish on a tight line to feel the bite just does not produce for me. I pitch the bait and strip off a couple of runs of line allowing the line to be slack. You learn the depth and weight of your bait to know when to pick up the slack as it as touches the bottom. Bass pick it up on the fall or just as the bait touches down. I pick up the slack to feel for the fish. There is always some variance of movement of the bait if there is no fish on the lure. After years and years of fishing this technique you get better and determining if it is a fish or a limb that you are feeling when you pick up the bait. Many times there is a question as the bite feels different from day to day. Sometimes the pressure of the bite is like dragging the bait up tight to the first limb; so set the hook when in doubt. Hook sets are free. Once you fish it this way for years and learn that any resistance usually means a fish; because there is no slight variance of movement from the bottom to that first piece of cover or limb.
