    Hey All,

    generally i dont use floaters at all, however when i want to change the depth im fishing this is the only way that i know how. however the size of bait that i use can really effect the effectiveness of my floater. what is a good floater that will support extreme size of bait. im talking 12" suckers and 10"+ bluegill. i figure big bait big fish and so far my theory is working, but fishing in ponds and lakes i need a floater to help me with depth. what all can you give me for help on this??

    Look at the ones Pete sells at Wild Wolf Products. He is a sponsor of this site. I like them and use them for big baits.

    why not use ballons like the stripe fisherman if you are using that big of bait. you can easely move them to where you want them.and I would think they would hold alot of pressure but still be able to tell the big fish on. and you can carry alot in a tackle box as well:big_smile:

    Jeremy I agree with this post. The Fat Kat Bobbers by Wild Wolf are the way to go. You will love them. They handle a large weight and large baits. And will many times set the hook.

    I myself need to see a picture of the 10" bluegill.:eek:oooh:



    AS for the floats, Thats all I use 100% of the time. I use, from top to bottom the 6,7,9" cigar floats(weighted) I can fish any size bait. I use them in lakes and ponds.

    I agree the fat cat bobbers are the way to go and I hooked everything that bites using circle hooks:wink:

    I agree, i have some of these and they work real well. You can tie a thread of yarn on you line at the desired depth and cast away. Also have a hole made in them for a glowstik
