How do you fish Lindy"s w/Bobber??

5 posts in this topic

I read in a previous post about walleye techniques, somebody said something about using bobbers w/ lindy rig, how do you set this up? Does it work well?

This is new to me.. I have not heard of it. .I have fished something semi similar for pike from shore? It was a sinker on the bottom to a snell and bait.. the bobber was used as a strike indicator.. but then again, you could just hold your line without the bobber and do the same thing... But this rig worked better because of the current of the river.

I believe the rig Deitz is referring to is called something like a paternoster rig, commonly used on the fens and lochs in Europe for zander, good for slight current as well. As to the original post, I have not heard of bobber fishing with a Lindy rig but there is the icebuster floating slip sinker that may be what is being referred to.

It works well if you have some snells tied up. What it does is it allows you to switch hooks really fast and get it back into the water. Your normal lindy rig set up with a swivel on top. So if you want to switch hooks open the swivel put the new line in there, close it and have at it again. Thats the way I usually fish with bobbers! Good luck.

I use it to fish current area from shore. It allows you to drift a lindy with out a boat. It works great. set so that the lindy sinker drags on the bottom. Use a light weight. I use it in channels alot.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
