I hope this is in the right place... I had a channel cat take my hook, and I gave him too much slack, so he went into the nearby grass. He bent my hook out and got loose (I was using inadequate hooks, it won't happen again :wink, but my spring float came loose. The only thing I can figure is that the line tension pushed the spring up and created enough of a gap for the line to come off, but I only had it come off that one time and caught more fish with it after that. Is this a common problem, or is there a certain way to put them on the line?
