salmon runs bring out the absolute worst.
seen way too many yahoos, snagging/flossing. the pm in michigan is IMO the worst. these yahoos spend 800 on a new outfit, spool the reel with mono and c&d the fish to death. its disgusting.
I have seen fisherman (in Indiana) use old spark plugs to weigh down their offering. they call it bump snagging, feel the fish bump the line set the hook.
they tie the plug to the bottom of the line then tie on a hook about 10" up with a puff of yarn on it. couple that with 50# fireline and you are ready to fill up the freezer.
