Rarely is it a complimentary term to be called a slacker, but when you’re fishing you want slack line between you and the bait. Throwing one of those cigar baits—the famous “walk the dog” surface presentation—the only way you can do that is with slack line.
Any time you make a cast and you’ve got a straight, tight line to your bait and you move it, all you’re doing is pulling it forward. You hit it on slack and it goes back and forth, back and forth, with that enticing action. So give it a try next time you go out. You hit it on slack line and you’ll become a slacker.
