3 keepers for Alton

Alton Jones, Jr., now has three keepers in the boat, including this chunk going into the livewell.

He eluded to doing something different and by all accounts that is true.

He is flipping a drop shot rig.

That rig, of course, is normally used on light line and in open water to catch bass suspended over deep structure.

For Jones, the tradeoff is fishing his drop shot rig on 14-pound test line, with a bait cast outfit. The heavier line allows him to fish the rig through shoreline cover, while the beefier drag and gear ratio of the bait caster help him winch in the bass.
