Yes, exactly, but let me tell you that I'm probably the last guy on here that should offer advice. This is just what worked for me in really fast current. When I just let swing at the end of the line I did sort of envision a baitfish. Aiming the rod tip left then right while it's swimming in the current worked good too.
