  1. Yeah Jim I understand that and it has happened to me a few times...that being said I have never heard of, seen, or practised myself the art of "plunking" for steelhead and that's what some of these folks were doing. In the huge area of Thomas Eddy. Unless I'm clueless I don't associate "plunking" with steelhead fishing.

    That's just me.

    I'm heading out this Friday with the wife and we are going to hit the lower middle stretches of the Snoho.
     
  2. Scott, are you serious? Plunking is HUGE with steelheaders. That's where they get the winter plunking shacks along the lower rivers. Plunkers bars and holes are on all rivers I've fished - usually in the lower stretches where drift fishing isn't so good. They build their little fire, sit back in their lawn chairs and drink beer or whatever, BS with eachother, while their huge 4oz pyramid lead weight holds their spin n glow and shrimp just right in the traveling lane of approaching steelhead. Of course they do it for other fish too (salmon), but plunking for steelhead is huge around here...

  5. Chad,you have it all wrong on the sinkers. They use 8 oz ones, a 4 oz wouldn't hold a size 2 spin and glow with a big gob of eggs attached in the faster water.
