In the water, the line flows freely through the float until the bobber hits the stop, leaving the bait at the desired depth. When you start to reel in, the float slides back down toward the hook again. This way, you can fish for walleye or catfish suspended inches off the bottom, panfish or pike suspended midway, or trout cruising along in the top third of the water column. There is a lot of versatility and room for experimentation. Rigging up a slip bobber takes a little more time than using a clip-on bobber but it’s well worth the little bit of extra effort.
HOW TO SET UP AND USE:
- Clip-on bobbers have a clip to hold the line.
- Slip bobbers have a hole thru them so that they can slide up and down the fishing line.
- A small knot tied on the fishing line to stop the bobber from sliding up the line.
- The line used to tie the knot is usually made of string.
- Next, a small bead with a hole thru the center is slid on to the line.
- The knot should be big enough to stop the bead from sliding past the knot, but small enough to pass through the rod guides easily.
- After finishing your rig, slide the stop to the desired depth.
- Then reel in enough line to make casting possible.
- The bobber stop should easily go through the eyes of your fishing rod.
- The float should slide down to the split shot or swivel.
- Bait up. You’re now ready to cast.
