I plan a longer post later about fishing rip-rap dams but first I have a quick question to anybody listening who does any indicator fishing to big fish. Is there more than one way to rig a thingamabober?
The reason I ask is because I exerimented a little more with indicator fishing again today. I hooked a nice hot fish but had to apply maximum pressure because of heavy current and the line broke at the thingamabobber! What the heck??!!! I work too hard for these fish, I can't afford an inferior rig. Is there a right way and a wrong way to rig a thingamabobber so that it doesn't stress the line?
EDIT - Steelheaders from facebook are telling me never to use thingamabobbers for big fish. Evidently that little grommet in there is metal and screws up your line on big fish. Who knew?
