    I always fish with a 10 in bobber with no bobber stop. I was just wondering if any of u guys fish the same rig.

    Not sure if this will help, but when we rod and reel fish on Lake Houston. we generally set a stop so your baits end up in the 3' to 5' range while using cut shad.....also, if you catch enough shad it helps to throw several handfulls of finely cut up shad around the area before you get started..This has worked consistently for us (especially around this time of year) We still set the rigs up at that depth whether we're fishing in 3' of water or 20' of water.....It' hasn't really mattered...but we by far catch more fish at the 3' to 5' range vs. bottom fishing.

    why would you use a slip bobber without a bobber stop?
    I've never heard of that.

    I am going to try the 3 to 5 ft depth. I have never been able to make myself do that. I am stuck on that bottom thing.
    Thanks for the report.
