    Just wanted to introduce this new forum. Should be a good one with the popularity of pinning increasing.

    Can someone describe what this method is in comparison to fly and spin fishing? Ive heard alot about it but have never seen it done. Is it a different technique, is it used in different conditions than more common types, and is it different equipment? Thanks.:dizzy: :gaga:

    The guys I've seen doing it typically are using floats with spawn,the advantage I've seen is you can float a loooooooongg way with zero resistance on the line...totally drag free drift.
    Different reel and rod...the reel resembles a very large arbor fly reel,but it's not a fly reel.Rods are typically long,over 11 ft,but I would imagine there's different applications than I've seen.
    MPsteelheader,Quest,Gomer and I'm sure others know a whole lot more than I do...I've seen their pics;)
    I've seen them used on piers with great success...that's what got my interest.

    I have a centerpin post in the cold water forum if a moderator would like to move it here. It has some good info in it.

    Apparently, once you're a year or two involved in pinning, you refuse to believe that a steelie will actually eat something other than suspended below a float. If it's swung, drifted, or bottom bounced, then it's lining. :lol:

    I'm out to prove that the style of float doesn't matter when presenting spawn, but I would like some tips on the proper way to stagger my shot under a snoopy bobber. Anyone have any suggestions?

    :yeahthat: :lol: :lol: :lol:
    Too bad you got yourself banned....see what happens when someone "double dog" dares you to follow through with your thoughts....Oh, thats right, you can't reply.:lol:

    Anyway, glad to see another forum for float fishing ...maybe the name could be changed from Center Pin to Float Fishing, that way TC and his snoopy "floats" will feel more welcome.

    TC, to put it simply, for slower flows evenly space out multiple shot on the line, below the previously mentioned Snoopy bobber, until the float is loaded (water line is the bottom part of the brighter colored top of the float). For faster, broken water, bunch your shot just above the swivel going to your leader. It can be more complicated than that but I think that should get you started.

    So a half ounce bell sinker under a snoopy bobber isn't going to cut it? Hmmm...no wonder I can't catch fish!

    I think I'll change my sig, just for you Flyfisher--"If it acts like a bobber, then it is a bobber!" j/k :lol:

    Guys this forum was started due to the fact that "center pinning" is probably the fastest growing technique in river fishing today. I'm well aware of the others, but this one has been getting a lot of discussion.
