    Make sure you cast past the fishing spot and sink your rod tip well under water. Draw the float back to where you are fishing sinking the line. This should keep the line tight to the float. When you strike keep the rod low and strike to the side.

    A stiff action rod of 13 to 15 feet is the minimum length to use longer if you can this helps with line pick up.

    Hope this helps
