Its been windy so I was looking for a mid summer technique fishable during wind. Have been reading about this for a bit. What setups and rigging do most of you pushers utilize. Had some luck today with 12' rods and Bandit 100s. How much weight is recommended to keep depth control? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

We were pushing 4 rods (2 Arkies and 2 100s) Sat and pulling 4 at 1.7mph on KY Lake. We couldn't buy a strike on an Arkie from anything but yellow bass. 2 rods had custom panted Bandit 100s and we went to a chinese 549 on one and a Shad Rap on the other where we took the Arkies off. We caught several keepers on those.

I use 5 oz weights 3 feet in front of my 100s and 3 oz weights 3 feet in front of Arkies or other minnow types like the 549 and Shad Raps.
