Capt. Mike Hogan and the Hogy Crew set out to Middleground in search of topwater stripers but before we can get into the action, Capt. Mike has a few tips on how to cast ergonomically to your normal position to avoid accidentally snagging the boat or hooking into one of your fishing buddies.
Instead of casting overhead, which is natural to most of us, Capt. Mike shows us how we can cast just as effectively from a side angle. If you are a right-hand caster, stay in the right-hand position, rotate your right hand over your left hand, come back and cast. That way, there is no lure flying over the boat. If you are a left-hand caster, repeat the steps in the opposite directions!
