cheapest way is gonna be drifting corkies. get a bunch of them (6 for a dollar at bi mart). couple feet of surgical tubing, some lead, yarn and some hooks.
a lot cheaper than $4 spinners.

Steelhead are said to be a fish of a thousand casts. You should probably pick a method and learn it well before you try and become a master of them all. I personally prefer float fishing and can cover most water with my float and jig/bait. I have buddies who are experienced drift fisherman and usually wouldn't even consider float fishing. I am biased but stick with your jigs and bait under a float and you will catch fish...eventually:cool:

ive only tried float fishing a few times and a like it so far. it's fun and not too hard. less complicated then drift fishing. thanks for the help

To be honest I would buy a extra jig and float maybe and just stick to one at first. I spent a lot of time changing gear when I first started. Takes up a lot of cast when that's a big part is how many cast u get in... U put me on a body of water with fish in it I'll put my money on being able to find at least one on a tipped pink jig!

I'd stay away from spinners till early-mid 2011. And fish bait under a float for the rest of the year/season. Coon Shrimp, Night Crawlers, Sandshrimp, Eggs, even ol' Tuna balls...from now till May for me. Maybe or maybe not in that particular order....Just me though.

Unless of course were plunkin'. Then it's a whole different story.
