Hi,

I am just wandering what depth you fish when using a hair rig on the pole?

Do you fish dead depth or slightly over depth so the hook/bait lies flat?

Thanks

It can be fished over depth. Off bottom. Up in the water. Shallow. Depends what you intend to do and and your reasoning why.

I try and fish with the bait just touching bottom. To plumb up, I just put an ssg in the band and use as a plummet to fine tune the depth.

Like many areas in fishing there is no one answer. It all depends what the fish want on the day. Start with what you feel confident in doing or experience teaches you works most often. Then adjust and experiment if it doesn't work as expected.
