|Well I'm trying to stay focused but I have to be honest , in my attempt to use a dropper ,, I'm having a mess every other cast , I'm sure it's a practice thing but man I'm just asking self why agrivate my self , I hear guys refer all the time add a small dropper , I seem okay just swing cast like throwing a nymph but this seems more of a pain then worth the outcome lol. Chime in boys! If you have success at this technique what works for you. , perhaps I just need more practice

I'm far from an expert caster (other TN's, feel free to advise me as well) but I've had best results using an 'open' loop to cast dropper rigs vs. a tight loop. I tend to cast tailing loops anyway and with a dropper doubling the chance of hooking the line I've resorted to the open loop cast to at least reduce this possibility. The lob cast seems to work but like I said I'm open to critique and advice, anytime!
spent the last 2 afternoons on the Muskegon and pretty much got blown off the water both times, even with single and double-haul, side-arm casts, the line had a mind of its own...and the fish that hit were all juvenile (delinquent) 'planters' who are simply dumb enough to hit anything anyway!
