Still a little new to panfishing. Mostly like to jig off the bottom using trout magnets. Lately, with new growth of grass/weeds just under the surface, I keep getting hung up. Any suggestions? Can you rig something weedless like bass fishing?
I'm big on panfishing, I usually stick to the outer edges of the weeds when fishing them. With good optics, you should be able to spot decent pockets of fish and I typically just work it jigging down to the bottom and working my way back up. I use a chartreuse 1/16oz jig head and my goto is a 2" bait that is both white and chartreuse and it's infused with garlic. Killer for crappie. As far as the perch go, I try to stick to around the 10' depth range and I troll a little road runner with something like a 2" twist tail
