    a slip bobber sits at the bottem of the line around where yer sinker is and u have a stop up on the line for watever depth u want thats the joy of using one they are easy to cast when it hits the water the line slips threw it and hits the stop easy as that

    I ordered some Maine Wolf bobbers and light sticks which came in yesterday. I'm real anxious to try them. I like the size of the bobbers. You can put some serious weight under them and they won't get pulled under. This should overcome the drag from the bobber on long casts.

    see thats the point of a slip bobber.... so it slips around the line so you don't have to have 25 feet of line out (realllly hard to do if not near impossible) to cast... the bobber will slip down to the swivel/weight/whatever and allow you to cast then go and slide all the way down if given enough line and weight to pull the line againt the water tension

    as for setting depth... let the fish tell you what they want... try at the top and work your way down till your consistantly getting hits...

    Yep, that's right.

    I would just like to add though that I recently discovered how the Cats can truly get so suspended you can't even catch them on the bottom. This summer (My first summer with a boat) I have gotten to try many different and new things. Well I wasn't getting ANY bites at all on the bottom so started using Slip Bobbers and as soon as I started using them I started catching nice Blue Cats. In the summer you need to fish the Thermocline I guess, and slip bobbers the best way to do that.

    Good luck
