Am i the only one that does this or what?
I bottom fish myself
yea i have fished a fewe times with bobber on the river i have cought a couple nive cats tat way
I use them here on the Tn river.
In the rite circumstances I'll use em on the Delaware. This river hauls a$$. Best time to use em is at slack tide so ya can work those area that if ya bottom fish its gonna cost ya a rig. LOL!
Use them all the time for channels ! Hard to beat watching a floater rocket down !!
I use them about 30% of the time that I'm Catfishing
But it all depends on the conditions and the speed of the current here at the Ca. Delta (River). :0a23:
Mike, I use them sometimes...depends on the river conditions.
Tried them a few times (BIG ONES) on the Mississippi, didn't go so well because there was waaayyyy too much current. Probably be a good tactic if you could find the right current break. Finding any current break last year was pretty difficult with all of the flooding.:tounge_out:
I have used them but have never caught anything other than channels yet. They seem like they would work great for a good controlled drift in light current.
Never used a bobber in a river, or a lake for that matter.
Mike, I use noodle bobbers when conditions call for it or if I want to cover more area. Biggest Flathead I caught last year came from a gill 5 feet under a noodle bobber.
i sometimes use a slipfloat along shallow rocky river banks (OH RVR) with night crawlers or small live shad when the blues are spawning
Yes when the time is right I use bobbers on the Cumberland River in Tennessee. You work alot more but in the early evening when the cats are feeding near the surface it can get interesting.
Bobbers work ecellent if you have the right conditions. I look for a place that either swirls or is slack water, and I always use a straw. I have caught quite a few 50 plus under a float.:roll_eyes:
I use them to float live perch over log jams.
we use the large bobbers with 1/2 oz to 3 oz weights with live bait.it work rather well in the eddy's or slow drifting past log jambs and laydowns:wink:
Not sure how big of slip floats everyone is using. But we have 2 people in Ar that are using our Fat kat Bobbers up to 8" long ( I have some made up that is 12" long) They allow the wind or current to take there bait up where the fish are.
So if you need something bigger let me know. I do plan on adding the bigger ones to our site soon.
I use them sometimes. I'll factor them in if the coditions call for them, and if I'm in the mood. Fishing bobbers can be a very productive and fun way to fish cats on a river. Flatheads are sometimes better suited to a bait suspended well off the bottom, and some might argue that the closer to the surface, the better. The jury's still out in my mind. In short, I'm still trying to learn to utilize floats to their full potential when fishing flatheads. Good luck!
Couldn't have said it better myself ! Good Post ! :cool2:
