Two methods of bass fishing, both of which I'd been using years before they became popular.
1. I couldn't feel a fish take a lure when I was Texas rigged, so I put a weight on the end of the line and tied my lure about 12 inches up from that. I was fishing this way in the mid-80s ... Now, of course, it's called the "drop-shot" rig.
2. Again, because I hate fishing with the weight in front of the lure in Texas rig, I decided to do away with the bullet weight and pinched a weight on the hook shank. Now you see belly weighted hooks all over the shelves.
I know I was using these ideas long before they became popular systems for catching bass.
