    I am getting ready to buy a supply of things but would like to know what everyone thinks is the best floats. I generally use a long float and some that are lighted. But its been a while sine I bought any. Generally have bought 24 at a time also is there any real good bobber stops your using. Seems the ones I had left work ok but then become loose and have to start over. Got plent of circle hooks and other just need new ideas on floats and stops

    I tie my own stops and they work fairly well

    For floats I like the 8 inch ones that are orange/white. For nighttime I go to the local dollar store and buy packages of Glow braclets. You get 6 for 1 dollar and you can just tape them onto your bobber

    HI JIM

    Welcome to the BOC...always good answers for your questions. What part of KY do you live in? Where do you fish?

    The floats that Catfish Jeffs carries are very nice. I have put them through hell and back and they hold up very well and they come in a multitude of colors. I believe they are around 3 dollars apiece. The phone number is 1-502-968-5094 and he is located off Blue Lick Rd. in Louisville.

    I perfer to fish on the bottom if I can avoid the snags. The last time I fished the "Falls of Ohio", I used 2 poles each with a float. The current makes a loop in 1 part of the river & goes back up the river to the down river current. Try to keep the 2 of them, APART!!! LOL!:roll_eyes:
