Canal fishing there are a few ways to present: 1. My preferred method especially in the morning when surrounded by anglers tossing Canal Swimmers is to cast a 2-3 OZ well past everyone else and burn that lure in. The strikes are serious, so hold on. This method resembles a lone mackerel broken away from the school, fleeing for safety in the shoreline. (if you can't beat'em join'em and out-fish your neighbors). #2 Cast a 3-4 oz Freedom Fish and let the current do all the work for you while reeling slowly. This method presents the bait in a manor in which it looks like a mackerel casually swimming without a care in the world. This is true until the bass underneath decides to eat and puts you to work. (work is a good thing here :)). The 3rd method is the deep jig where a 4-5 oz freedom fish is needed in most cases. This is when the angler casts up current keeping tension on the line just enough, so you can feel the lure hit bottom. I usually let an extra 6-10 seconds of line out creating a bow in the line to present this bait in a "swimming with the current presentation" and then start popping the lure when you feel it hit the bottom.
