Steelhead anglers on the tributary rivers and stream of the Great Lakes have been fishing with floats for a number of years. It's kind of like fishing for bluegill with a bobber and bait, but the current can be a lot swifter, the fish a lot bigger and the anglers a little older (at least chronologically). These rods are long for good reason. You need to be able to mend your line so you can maintain a drag-free drift and cover as much water as you can, plus when you lift the tip to set the hook, you can move a lot of line which is especially important when the floats are set deep or you’re at the end of a long, extended drift. The extra length also helps protect lighter line, especially considering the size of the fish.
