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.
