What I do is tie a number two live bait hook about 10-12" from the bottom where I put a 1oz bell sinker. I find this to be much more efficient than the pic rig and you'll tend to loose less bait in the process. I'll drop it right to the bottom and if you're in the right spot, sometimes it will be gone as quickly as it gets there. When I go out of Burwell I'll look for the boats in around 40fow or ask at the marina where they're getting them.
Gone fishing, be back at dark-thirty!
