Bobber setup

Discussion in 'Steelhead Talk' started by LukeShortStack, Oct 2, 2007.

  1. We were out on the Longwall over the weekend. We were throwing spoons and spinners. We got the big :S . The water was deep and there were some hookups on bobbers. I couldn't tell if the bobber guys were slip bobbering or they were fishing 3-5 feet down? What do you guys recommend for a jig-n-maggot bobber setup in the deep water? Slip or fixed float? I figured we just weren't staying in the zone with our hardware. Thanks for any info.

    Steelhead on the feed will feed up in the water column when staging for a fall run. They stay deeper in open water. 3 to 5 feet is about as deep as you need.

  3. Thanks Wannab! I usually smack them in the rivers. Appreciate the feedback.
  4. I usually fish 4-6 feet down in the lake. I've seen some guys use bobber stoppers with slips, but the majority don't.
