    If I didn't have at least one rig with a slip bobber on it, I wouldn't be fishin!!! They work great.

    In-Fisherman had a show with Doug Stange and I think Matt Straw where they were walking the shoreline and using collaspable crappie poles with some line and a slip bobber and fishing heavy duty snags and pulling some sweet cats out with them.

    Slip bobbers will always have a place in my tackle

    Matter of fact, I caught my PB of 2009 on a Slip Bobber rig. It was a 15lb. 10oz. Channel Cat. The fish I'm holding on my Avatar! I was using bloodbait on a Slip Bobber rig to present the bait over some rocks where the big cats live. Very productive techique and it works great to present baits near snags where otherwise you would get snagged up using a bottom rig..

    Yes, bobbers are always in my fishing arsenal!!:big_smile:

    I've come to the realization that not all cats stay on the bottom..Especially in lakes that stratify during the summer the cats will be suspended..Plus who says you can't use a slip bobber and not still fish on the bottom?

    All I use is slip Bobers and planer boards. With a slip I can fish the bottom or suspend my bait. Usually start off with some on the bottom and some suspended of the bottom till i see where the cats are. :)

    I agree with you all on the slip bobbers. If you haven't tried the Wild Wolf katbobbers, check them out and move up to another level in bobber fishing. They will do the work for you.
