    This is my favorite way to set up for bobber fishing river chinook.

    GLoomis GL2 SAR 1084C, Calcutta 400B loaded with 65# Power Pro.

    I like the 35g Cleardrift float and a 1 oz inline sinker.  I use a piece of black tubing between the float and sinker as a shock absorber.

    Notice the blacked out sinker and line for stealth, darkened with a Sharpie.

    In spring I use 20 to 30 pound leader, depending on water clarity.  Fluorocarbon can be used if the water is really clear.

    Thanks for the gram interpretation on the Cleardrift float.  Always wondered.  I’ve used Seaguar’s Premiere and been as low as #15 just to see.  #20 is about right.  Tough stuff as long as you use a double clinch.

    Lately with the low, clear water we have been catching our fish very early in the morning, like in that legal time frame that starts one hour before sun-rise.

    Of course it’s hard to see your bobber in the dark so we have been running a couple large glow in the dark corkies on top of our bobbers.

    When you see the lights go out, reel down and set the hook!
