so I've heard about a bobber straw where you put a straw and a bobber above your main float but what is the point of it?

This doesn’t sound like it is what you are asking but it did seem interesting.

I know what it is but whats the reason for them?
The video makers statement at the 8 minute area says it will help prevent live bait from tangling the line. I assume he means the drop line getting wrapped around the main line between the bobber and the reel. But he also says the bead is slightly magnetic so will stick to lead. My understanding of metallurgy might not be up to date but that just ain’t right. It might stick but it ain’t a magnetic attraction.

I have never tried this straw method so can not verify what it will actually do.

good luck with your search.

I have to say that after watching the video and reading the comments I am more confused.
I guess I need to see it in action.

:p
