    I'm wanting to get and try out a KatBobber. Trying to figure out which size the best. Im thinking a 4 " ???

    I'm wanting to use it for fishing Flatheads, using LIVE bluegill roughly hand size.

    What do you guys recommend?

    No matter witch size you use, the Blue Gill won't pull it under. He mite swim with it. I use the 4 in with a 3 oz wieght, it slow down the swim on the Blue Gill. Also I think that it has more resistant on it when the flathead starts to pull it under so I think it give a better hook set. Get you a couple and have fun fishing.

    I do the same thing Kittycatcher does. With the heavier weight sinker I have had trouble with the teflon tape for stop knots slipping so I've went with the pre-tied stop knots and haven't had any trouble with them slipping.

    Thanks Much:

    I just got this e-mail with pics from Rob (Rushing) here on the BOC.

    Nice Fish for Sure.




    Hey Gene,

    This is "Rushing" up in MN. I have a couple of pictures you could throw up on your gallery if you like. These arethe two best fish I got in the short couple of months left in the season after I got my kat bobbers lastsummer.

    My first flattie with a kat bobber (17lbs). Fished about 7ft down in in about a 12ft deep eddy in front of a creeek mouth, using a bullhead, on the Minnesota River.

    Biggest Flathead I have caught with a kat bobber so far was this 33lber that came on a bullhead fishing a giant eddy that was about 6ft deep.

    Can't wait for winter to be over so I can grt back out on the river!

    Take Care!
    Rob


    Thanks

    Gene
