Can you troll with a slip bobber?

Slip bobbers are very versatile floats and are almost always a better choice than fixed bobber. As they can slide up and down your line, they can be fished at any given depth. But slip bobbers are also a perfect fit for long distance casts and for trolling baits behind your boat.

How do I choose a bobber size?

The Right Size Float It’s generally best to use the smallest bobber possible to float the bait or jig and still keep at least half of the bobber above the surface. The larger the bait being used the larger the bobber.

What is the difference between a float and a bobber?

As nouns the difference between float and bobber is that float is a buoyant device used to support something in water or another liquid while bobber is (fishing) a buoyant device (frequently made of cork) attached to a line so as to suspend the end of the line with the hook (and bait or lure) above the bottom.

What is the best bobber to use?

If you are in deeper water, the sliding mode is the best choice. The sliding mode allows the bobber to go up and down like a traditional slip bobber. If you are fishing in more shallow water, the fixed mode is the best choice. The fixed spring slip bobber will work just like a conventional fixed bobber.

Can you reel in a bobber stop?

The bobber stop is small enough to reel through the rod guides and even onto the spool of your reel, so casting and reeling fish in is much easier. Crappies and bluegills will often be found a little higher off the bottom, so you’ll want to set the bobber stop shallower.

Should you use a bobber when bass fishing?

They’re best suited for fishing waters no deeper than the length of your rod. This style keeps your bait at a preset depth while fishing. In deeper water, or when casting long distances, use a slip bobber to eliminate casting problems caused by the long length of line between the bobber and hook.
