Aside from the secret spot......what is the program? Curious. Floats? Straight jig? Tried any spinners or spoons?
Program remains the same so far for us so this year. All fish on 1/16oz jigs under a float, no maggots yesterday. Dark/natural colors were being favored it seemed until my Dad doubled up yesterday on a pink jig. Not really doing much other then keeping you float mended and upright. We fished from 2-4p, all fish were caught within 30 mins of each other. We have not had any success with spoons or spinners. We both made some casts with a spoon but no bites. I have never been successful casting spoons myself so I have no confidence in it even though I see people post pics of fish they caught on them 🤷♂️Aside from the secret spot......what is the program?

I'll get real mad if you didn't try any of those magic jigs I gave you....Fished after work from 6-11pm. Hand tied jigs in dark colors worked then switched to glow jigs after 8pm. Was fast and furious till I left. It was really hard to leave biting fish. Lost count of how many I hooked and landed. 5am came way too fast and I'm struggling at work this morning lol.
I've heard of the bead system and read about it. Some call it flossing . The fish takes the bead and the line slide through their mouth and hook gets the side of mouth.THANKS very much for the details, guys,,,,, if the fresh eggs don't work, we'll be sure to try it your way.
I'll take up a bunch of hair jigs, & maggots too.
Somebody, please Explain this one,,,,
A good friend just came back from steelie fishing for 3 days, & while fishing, 2 yakers came down River. They said that they were having a ball,,,, they had caught many fish & some were close to 10#.
When asked what was working,, they showed him their rig,,,,, NO BAIT, NOT EVEN HAIR!???
They had a #10 treble on the bottom, then 2-3" of very small ID rubber tubing on the line that was holding up ONE, egg size, small fluorescent orange or red plastic BEAD. THAT'S IT. ????????????? no bait & no scents added.
SO,,,,,, If someone ever used this drifting 'system', Please reply,,, I still have a dozen questions!
LIKE,,,,, if the fish is keying on the bead, how the heck is it getting the treble in it's mouth, when it's 2-3" away??
(I visualize a snagged fish, or constantly snagging the bottom)
I told my friend to TAKE A PICTURE, if he ever sees them again.
I can't believe it
Some do call it flossing and some will say that using a bead is essentially flossing. Especially if you're really dragging that bead through spawning fish, it is likely that can happen. However, I have in my own personal experience, seen a fish chase down a bead. It's pretty cool. If you can properly drift the presentation to barely tick bottom it should be a rather efficient and ethical way to hook into a fish legally.I've read about the bead system
