Center pin rods & reels are not a new concept or technique, but they are new to today's angler. The theory behind the technique is a drag-free drift, whether you're fishing bait on the bottom or suspending bait or jigs beneath a float. The reels, extremely smooth single-action models, resemble fly reels and have clicker drag systems to help prevent free-spooling. They have rimmed spools so ...
Steelhead use holding water to rest as they leave the ocean or the Great Lakes and migrate up coastal streams and inland tributaries to spawn. It's usually just in front of a boulder where the current is soft or out of the main current in a slot where the water is slightly softer. That's exactly why you need a long rod to drift baits or bait-like artificials for these oversized, searun rainbows. ...

Hot Shot rods have relatively light tips and magnum butt-sections. They were originally designed to fish steelhead plugs, like the Hot Shot, where the boat actually is positioned at the head of a run, letting the current pull the plug down to the fish zone. The boat sweeps back and forth across the current so the plugs cover the entire width of the run repeating the process. Lure action is ...
Side-drifting is a very effective method for fishing bait, normally cured salmon or steelhead eggs or an artificial version of same, for steelhead or the smaller salmon species. The technique is simple enough... just position the boat at the top of a good looking run, allow it to drift slowly downstream while the anglers cast to likely looking holding water and let their baits drift enticingly ...

Backbouncing is a very unqiue technique where you position the boat up current of a run and bounce you bait back in the run letting the current float it back. For this technique you need a light, sensitive and powerful rod and the IMX has that rod for you. ...
