    Reason I use braid for the main line and mono for the leader, save my weight

    John, when your running a single jig below a weight, how long is your mono leader?

    2.5 to 3 foot long, same as a crank pushing rig

    Very productive especially on lakes that get a thermocline. I like to do it with 1 oz weights. That way I don't feel like I'm lifting bricks out of the water. Road runner/spinner type jigs work great for this. I try to get as big a profile as a crankbait on the bottom. Tie them up and wrap them on pool noodles like I do double minnow rigs.

    Road runners work great. When I used to push that's what I started with. Road runner head and a minnow. Then eventually I realized the minnow was what they wanted so I just started tying on 2 plain hooks and a weight. Road runners got expensive. But they do work. I still use a road runner with a curly tail grub and a spin cast pole. Cast around structure and the weed lines during spawn.

    When you power troll roadrunners, do you run them with curly tails? Do you tip them with minnow?

    I usually use some type of curl tail jig, mostly seem to use bobby garland strollers but i have a bunch of other regular curl tail jigs. I usually let the fish tell me to tip with a minnow or not. I start out with about half tipped with a minnow and if they want the minnow i will tip em all.
