These kat bobbers are just perfect for drift fishing or any other way one likes to fish. Maw and I mostly drift fish and with the Kat Bobbers the bait is presented as natural as if it weren't on the hook. If you are hanging up on the bottom just hit bottom and reel up a little and fish that depth, no more hangups. We fish with large bream and the Kat Bobbers will hold the big bait and big sinker just fine. You are not limited to fishing right along side the boat either. Fishing up to a log jam is great also because you can anchor above the jam and float your bait right up to the jam without getting hung up. If I hadn't tryed them I wouldn't believe how much they improve our fishing.
