How do you rig up for bobber & jig fishing for steelhead?
Do you use a swivel under the bobber?
I have never done that for Steelhead but there a bunch of videos on you tube. Here is one where he did use a swivel and it makes cents to me.
Dang pic is too large to load...
That's ok .
I think I have it figured out.
Just need to figure out how to keep my hands and rod eyes from freezing up.
Well third time is a charm!!!! The mainline I use is Braid because it mends way better that momo which sinks.
Well I hope the freezing weather is behind us for now.... fingerless gloves if you can get used to them.
That double eye jig is pretty cool I have never seen those before.
Here is one supplier that I found.
And those Nightmare jigs flat out catch fish too!!!
I enjoy using neoprene gloves. Just dip your rod tip I the water every once in a while to get rid of the ice.
Finally caught one on a bobber & jig this morning at sun up.
Thanks for all the help.
Thats one purdy fish. Ive fished both Santiam's and Alsea but alas, no Steelhead for me. Normally just jig an bait, never tried the nightmare but I will now. Anyone on this forum fish the Idaho Snake/Boise/Clearwater rivers for Steelhead? Thanks.
I caught that steelhead on a all black jig.
