    Welcome to the BOC Wallbass! Alot of times I use a bobber on a carolina rig to keep my bait off of the bottom. Normaly I use a styrofoam cigar bobber, but if all I have is a round one, I will use that. I use the round weighted styrofoam bobbers for crappie fishing. I don't much care for plastic bobbers because they get cracked too easy. I haven't used a slip bobber yet, but they are usually larger cigar shaped shaped bobbers. Gonna get me some real soon. You will learn tons on this site!!! Have fun.:big_smile:

    Welcome to the BOC, Jeff. I like the cigar bobbers to, they much easier to see than the round ones.

    First off, welcome to the BOC. I never use round bobbers cause it seems like it's really hard for fish to take them under, so some fish spit the bait because they feel the resistance.

    Hey Jeff,
    ":0a27: with Adrina"
    Just imagine you being underwater & trying to pull a beach ball under there.

    Now - you're trying to swim down to the bottom with that same beach ball.

    you may have to let go of the beach ball to do so ("spiting out the bait").:wink:

    Oh I forgot :shame:
    ":0a25: to the B.O.C. Buddy".

    Take it easy,

    Thanks Guys
    I usualy use a pole slip bobber,but thought it might be easier on the river with holding the bait up. Seems the cats never have a problem when Jug Fishin.....Thanks Jeff:)
