    Caught a 3 pound channel at a local lake on a bobber rigged 3 foot down
    just wondering has anyone tried this in the river for cats. Thanks

    I only fish on lakes; however, I fish a slip float rig on 1 of my lines everytime I fish. I have caught a lot of good channels this way. Some days that the only rig they will bite.

    I fish the Susquehanns River and Pine Creek in PA. I use some slip floats and regular bobbers. What kind of bobbers are you using?
