Great advice give here. One of the comments triggered a question in me as well. How far should your lures ride behind the streamers? I normally put the lures farther away from the weight but I'm not sure how to handle the streamers.
Reminds me of myself only a few years ago...where do you fish out of? I am 19 years old and started asking questions on the site just like you so I'd be more than willing to bring you out if I am around when you are up.
That would be great! I am up at the lake now, and will be through the 4th of july. And will be up after that hopefully a couple more times. let me know when you are up and maybe we can work somthing out.
