Going to try some drift fishing this year for the first time. We have a small 14ft boat so wondering if it might be a little difficult. Should I run 4 poles off the back or try to stay parallel? And if I drift parallel do I need 2 drift socks?(at the front and back). Also, what size drift sock should I use? I saw a few different drift rigs that I'll experiment with and switch around depending on where I'm drifting. Is a trolling motor necessary to have to stay straight? Any tips or suggestion would help out. I'll probably be targeting channels in lakes mostly. I'll eventually try to drift for blues in the Ohio River but don't live close and normally only make it down there once or twice a year and always bank fish, although this year I might give it a try.
