What is yo-yoing? Up here in the northeast, Yo-Yo'ing pogies (menhaden or bunker, depending on where you are from) is a highly effective, yet controversial technique. It involves taking a dead pogie, shoving a metal rod down the length of the fish to keep it straight, then loading its belly with a weight (think spark plug, 3+ ounce lead sinker, etc...). The pogie is then "Yo-Yo'd" over deep water structure for monster stripers. It is a practice commonly used by commercial striped bass fishermen. The problem is that when you hook a fish, they commonly spit out the bait, leaving a pogie floating around with lead weights and a metal rod stuck in it. When another striper comes along and eats the bait, they will inevitably die from being stuck with a 12" metal rod and big weight.

This is a traditional yo-yo fishing reel....Its a reel which is spring loaded with a latch that allows you to set line depth. What you do, is you is tie it to a post, pier, or the most common way to a tree limb hanging over the water. You set the depth and latch the reel. when the fish bites, it trips the latch off and the spring loaded reel sets the hook. Its better to put it on a limb rather than a post because the limb has more give which gives a little more resistance to the fish. What i like about them is you can run large quanities. And they are in a fixed place. Thats the best way i can explain it.....

Very Effective Technique:thumbsup: :thumbsup: We modified the metal rod and weight so that they are attched to the mainline via a tagline from the hook, we didn't loose a single rig this year.

This is easily my favorite way to fish. Hang 100 or so lines and build a fire, drink beer and run yo yos all night long. You can clean up on crappie if you know what you are doing.
