 n.— «Dead-sticking basically means tying on a lure and dropping it to a certain depth or to the bottom and leaving it there with no imparted motion. Think of it as bait fishing without the bait. Jigs, spoons and soft-plastic worms or minnow imitations are all types of lures that can be effective using the dead-sticking technique.» —“When less is more” by Barry St. Clair Athens Review (Texas) Dec. 2, 2006.
