When I'm fishing my corkies I pin them with a toothpick so it doesn't float up on the leader. Every once in a while I'l have series of casts where I'm constantly pushing the corkie back down to the hook. The reason I pinned it was so it didn't move. I checked the corkie, it appears tight. Not too tight but tight enough. Whats going on here?

I've also heard not to peg the corkie...

does it matter?

if so, to peg or not to peg is the question

Bardo, do you mean using a piece of 30# test in place of the toothpick? If not then, LOL at Bardo...

Are you using bait with the corkies? When you use eggs your bait loop constricts as your eggs milk out.

I let my corkies hang free. The current keeps them at the hook.
