I don't see how dragging your lure a crossed the bottom of the lake, can let you control your lure. I'm not a fan of the "New retrieval" system. It messed up fishing for me and my friends. There's no way of making the lure do it's normal keeping off the bottom. I don't know why you guys wanted to change it. -_-

I like how lures are working now. It is a lot more natural and how it actually works.
