    so i was looking for some big baseball sized bobbers to fish live bream under...but could not find anything....

    one of my fishing partners (soupman) went to a crafts store and found the perfect substitute....

    crafts store sell a large round styrofoam ball....we will have to drill a hole through it and use the bobber stoppers found on the cigar type bobbers but they should work great...

    i went to wal-mart this afternoon and saw that they sell them there as well...in the craft section....they even sell softball size if your looking for something bigger

    they can be painted black on one side and a bright color on the other side for visibility....we are going to attach a glo stick to ours as well for night fishing....

    i can post some pics if any ones interested...

    i usually pack balloons in my tackle bag for floating. i dont have to re-rig to putt one on or off.

    i did see those... the squarness kind of turned me off... besides I am using these in heavy cover and can't let the cat run even an inch or it may be able to put me in a hang up.....i am fishing VERY HEAVY COVER!!!

    i am using a regular j hook so... (and trust me I love circle hooks) (They are on all my other rods).... I can control the fish with a good solid hook set...but If mine don't work...I may try those....

    thanks...

    Trust me, those katbobbers work like a champ. That squareness seems to help set the hook for you and they'll last forever compared to anything made our of styrofoam. I started using them with that same feeling, but they work very well.

    I second what Bryan said. I use the Katbobbers and they beat anything out there. That styrofoam won't last long but the Katbobbers will be with you for years.
