I don't think you need to get a DVD. Trial and errors cheaper. Sandworms are the most expensive thing. I like sandy bottoms or around the rocks. 1 to 2 mph tops. I use braid tied to a ounce in-line trolling weight or two ounce in more the 20 feet of water. Then of course 3 feet of fluro tied to the tube. I like t mans but theres many out there. Try a couple different colors but I like scarlet with black and purple the best. Getting it to the bottom is key and keeping it in that range. Many times I'll hit bottom with the weight and get a fish right after. Spend the fifty on tubes and sandworms instead.

I don't like the keels because they are larger and pick up more weeds. Never did look at the site and braids the only way to go. Too much stretch in mono for trolling for me at least, fish sets it without you doing anything but holding on.
