i have a small eagle claw slip bobber and under it i have 3 bb size slipt shots then an orange glo bug this would work for steelhead right? just want to know f it will be worth trying tipped with a nightcrawler at tucca &three rivers. ill be using it paired with a 5'6 cheap shakspeare rod and 6lb test LOL.(i know it's stupid but if my drag is set right i could land a fish) thanks,

Should work except I'm wondering why the use of multiple split shot. Seems like it could hang up easier if the depth isn't set right. Why not use just one slightly larger, depending on current and depth, about a foot above the glo bug.:think:

never tryed it...don't see why not.
I hate that because I get really pumped about using something...then try it for the 1st 10 minutes on the water, and switch up if its not working.

thanks for the replies guys. and i use multiple because i see a lot of other people do it i guess. i do the same thing when using a plain worm under a float and it works fine. but tangling is an issue sometimes. and bud. i know what you mean about using somthing and it dosent work at first it gets frustrating .

I would ditch the orange egg on the tucca... I would go with a peach glo bug, or if its sunny yellow with a red yoke or white with a red yoke.... and I would ditch the bait, if you insist on the need use anise or some salmon feast on the glow bug..

and if orange isn't good for the tucca what river is it good for? cause i have 4 of these glo bugs i found packed away and all of them are orange.. don't want them to go to waste and i know they will work somwhere.
