Slipping Away! The new Bobber Fishing By Gary Howey

We all remember bobber fishing, how we fished when we were youngsters, you would snap a plastic bobber onto the line at the depth you want your bait to be. You would cast it out and when the bobber goes under the water, you set the hook.
It was a great way to catch fish, at times a real pain as your hook, weight and bait would tangle up with your bobber.
You’re probably wondering why I’m writing about bobber or float fishing? Everyone knows about bobber fishing, right!
It really does not take a nuclear scientist to figure out this fishing method. This is true but there are several problems with this type of bobber fishing, especially if you are fishing deep water.
First off when your bobber or float as they’re called today is set at six or seven feet, it’s darn near impossible to cast without bouncing the bobber off your fishing partners head or piercing your ear with the hook.
Secondly, once you have reeled the bobber up to your rod tip, you’ve still have six or seven foot of line and your fish dangling below the bobber.
With the really tough part being, how can you land or net a fish at the end of that six or seven feet unless your net man has super long arms or at least a net with nine foot of handle!
Slip bobbers have solved these problems allowing you to fish areas that you were not able to fish with the old style bobbers!
They allow you to fish for suspended fish at any depth and not have to worry about the bobber being “attached” several feet above your hook. These bobbers slide down against the weight, jig or hook allowing the angler to cast the line with ease.
Slip bobbers are simple to use; they slip or slide up and down your line until stopped by the bobber stop.
The stop is adjustable, sliding up and down allowing you to set it at any depth and small enough to allow you to reel it up into your reel.
These bobbers’ stops are simple. They can be fancy or as simple as braided line or rubber band tied around the line. [Read more…]
