When drifting the shallows to locate schooling fish, stealth is critical. And once you locate the fish, it’s important to find them again on another pass. There are any number of ways to mark the school with electronics, if you choose, but the tried-and-true analog way still works, and is available whether you have electronics or not. Once you’re on top of the action, simply deploy a marker: a crab-trap buoy rigged with a weight and a line works, but so does a stake-out pole or a push pole, shoved into the bottom. Once you’ve drifted through the school and the action tapers off, keep drifting, far enough away not to disturb the fish, then fire up and swing wide for another pass, using the buoy or pole as reference, and set up to drift toward that as a target.
