I see, thanks!
I always thought bait fishing was supposed to be as leas disturbance as possible. But what you said makes sense! Get their attention and they'll hit the bait.
I'm assuming paternoster then. Cant think of 'bouncing' on running sinker.
That’s the one - I use paternosters when drifting for flathead, using a swivel sinker?(not sure what they’re called) but I tie a paternoster with twisted dropper loops, then a clip swivel at the bottom so sinkers can be easily changed. This way the rod can be rigged and just select and clip on the required size sinker when you get to the location. I also unclip the sinker when moving spots to avoid it bouncing and wrapping around the rod

If anything the ability to cover more ground and add a bit of movement to the bait is a help more than a hindrance. Obviously if you're targeting a particular reef or sand hole then drifting might be more trouble than it's worth because you have to keep re-positioning but otherwise I find it works really well.

Running sinker rigs work fine for drifting.

Just ordered a drift chute. So just attach it to the side handle and that's it I'm assuming.

Pretty much.

If you have an anchor trolley you can slide the chute anywhere along the side of the yak which can be helpful sometimes but if you don’t clipping it to the handle is fine.

As Ian said, it can be clipped to the side. I don’t really use a drift chute much in the PA but I used it frequently in my paddle yak, I would connect it to my anchor trolley then position the chute toward the back or the front so I was at a 45 degree to chop so I wasn’t side on to the chop. For me this made things a little more comfortable having the chop running along the hull rather than across it

Oh true!
My kayak doesn't have anchor trolley :-(
What if I clip the chute onto something just behind the seat. I mean it can be clipped onto anything right. Anchor trolley makes it easier to adjust.

That would work out fine, as always keep an eye on the conditions you are fishing in and adjust to suit the conditions :tu:

You can clip the chute anywhere on the kayak thats secure and wont break off.
Once you use it you will work out where to tie it and how to make good use of it. Position of the chute does matter so you can make the most of it..

Personally drift chutes are an absolute pita.
But it does help slow the drift down..
