Bobber doggin'
      #52127 - 03/11/03 03:44 AM

Saw Dogfish's post where he talked about doing this. Can anybody clue me in to this? Is it merely boondoggin' with a float and jig? Seems like you'd be drifting through too quickly. Any hints on this technique???? Thanks, I'd like to try it, I love float fishing.

We call it Flydoggin after Joe "Superfly" Superfisky. He turned me on to Flydoggin 2 years ago. Deadly.

Think of Flydoggin as using a sliding dink float above a drift gear set up.

Here's how to set it up.

Tie on a float stop.
Follow that with a small bead.
Put on the dink float.
Tie on your swivel
Put on a piece of pencil lead
Put on a 2-3' leader
Bait up with good eggs.
Cast up river from your drift boat as you drift.

Set the float so that your lead bounces/drags on the bottom, but not so muc that you're getting caught up. You DO want your lead dragging on the bottom, though.

The float does a few things for you:

-Keeps your bait in the terminal drift. If you free spool while drifting along, you can go for a long long time with your bait in the terminal area.

-Slows your presentation down. Goes against everything you learned as a drift fisherman, but that's what fish like with bait.

-Although there is a float, if you keep your line off of the water, you will feel the "chew" of a fish. The float is only nice if you're fishing with RT, so you can see his float go down and yell "RT! FLOAT! FLOAT"

Flydoggin' RULES! Hard to beat, if done correctly.

I use an Allstar 1263c as my Flydoggin' rod. A good 10.5' casting rod is a must. Or, for those not good with a baitcaster, a good 1143 or taller spinning rod is a good setup.

That method was decribed in STS 5-7 years ago for fishing the Salmon.

The method was also in a more recent STS. It was in one of RT's "Reet Truth" columns. Joe Superfisky was the special guest (along with Bob Ball) and Joe describes this technique.

RT can probably tell us which issue it was.

Reruns...another reason for not reading it.

Parker has it down,my only input is this,
a bead above and below the dink
set your bobber stop about 1 foot deeper than the water you are fishing,it's better to error too deep than too shallow..........Os

That column piece by Joe was in the Dec.-Jan. '02 issue of STS, Parker (with Tony D. on the cover). ... Fly'boondoggin is especially good for faster steelhead holding water that has more large rocks along the bottom - because the current is significantly slower near bottom than on the surface. If you don't slow down your float drift in those type of fish holds, and let it run the speed of the surface current, less fish will take. It obviously helps keep from snagging up too, while still getting the visual benefits of float fishing. ... The opposite situation can occur in real slow water holds, where adding slightly more speed to your offering can draw more steelhead strikes (mentioned in Scott Amerman's Tidewater Steelheading article in STS).

"Hey, where's my float?" ADD?
