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 along-side the boat. It creates a very natural drift that can be extended as long as the holding water allows. When the fish takes the bait, they will usually drift slightly down current with the offering as they mouth it. Good anglers feel this "difference" in the drift and set the hook, but just as often, you see the strike as the fish grabs the bait and returns to the holding spot a few feet upstream. When this happens, they all but jerk the rod out of your hands. It's a fun, exciting way to fish that requires a rod that is sensitive, light weight and powerful. IMX allows us to create a rod with the perfect blend of line/lure control, power and sensitivity. Soft enough so the fish will hang on to the bait, sensitive enough to allow you to react before they drop it.
