Sure does. I like the idea of draging cut across the bottom weightless, sounds good in shallow water. Looks like the billy boy bobbers lighted pole float and the weighted lighthouse slip floats are on my list, found them in the Catfish Connection catlog. I have been troting the float down rapids steering them into pockets behind bolders and deeper shoots and has worked well. Have been using a 7'6" med baitcaster with 50 pound tuff line xp as a main line and 20 pound mono as leader but sometimes I switch to my centerpin rod and reel that is used for steelhead at 11'6" foot and light action it sure is fun. Started using floats under the dam in Crookston for cats and then learning how to use them for salmonida in the rivers around duluth. I think it's the best way to cover water in the river unless your casting for bass. I need to find a longer med. action rod to work the floats the way I want but the pin is sure fun.
