Float and Jig: A salmon or steelheads favorite! Colors, Weight Size, Jig Heads Molds and Materials (rubber vs marabou). We will cover the types of water to find salmon and steelhead who want to bite a dead drifted jig under a float.

One of the largest Chinook caught at jpsguideservice. This Chinook weighed over 40lbs! We needed to use 1oz Floats paired with 1oz weights, topped off with uv bait weights to punch down deep enough to the biting kings.

When this group of chinook wouldn’t take 5 different cures of eggs we switched to the spinner and was rewarded with this incredible reaction bite to the slowly swung spinner.

Bob and Leah had to backbone their limit of chinook in rising river conditions on this day. A rewarding technique behind lots of angler pressure or rising water when the overhead float bite has died. Theres nothing like spoon-feeding a chinook!
