Hook I use that same method my self when I don't have time to get the boat out and I hit a few small retention ponds close to home. I also like to use a larger piece if I can make a longer cast to deeper water for some larger bass. This can be a deadly method if the bullheads don't get there first.GOOD FISHING.
