YEEEHAH!!!! Thanks for the update. Used to get this excited when the steelhead started showing up at the river mouths.
In the current - sinking line, shock and stop; on either side eddy (which they frequent) intermediate.
I do best with one of two options - rippin fast or shock and stop, let it sink and jolt it without moving it very far at 1/2 second to 2 second intervals (or even longer in current)
