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.

    • Bureaucrate-   Correctly me if I'm wrong, weren't you a huge advocate against AIS lawd and allowing the DNR to pull over fishermen and boats for an inspection? But you are okay with them pulling over deer hunters?    Sounds like anything they do, you are against. If they said black, you'd say white...

    • Same circuit as the freezer?!! Oh no no no......!!! They kick in at the same time, and  *TRIP* Always have the pump on a separate circuit!!  As mentioned, GFCI is what code calls for, but sometimes dampness will pop one, rare, but I've seen it happen. I nixed the GFCI on mine when I ran a separate circuit for just the pump. That should solve your problem.

      I have 2 2500 stradics in dis-repair.

      Heard it may be simple as a spring.
      I am kinda cheap….if costs a lot to fix i will buy new reel. Anyone know somewhat local repair person that is reasonable?
    • Well you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

    • Ok I'll save you from dying. Where can i pick it up? 
    • I use to work on all aluminum body fire trucks.  The only screw, bolt, washer, or nut that we would use was stainless steel as the by using anything else will allow electrolysis to start from dissimilar metals and corrode.  Only problem was the strength of the SS is not as high as regular steel.  Also if you are using SS, i would only use bees wax as a lube.  I use to buy it in a block, and just rub the threads on the screw before putting in the hole.  If you don't, you may find that the threads gall up and strip out.  Then you have issues cause it can be tough to drill out a broken SS screw.  If you have a bunch to do, i found that a combination drill/tap was very useful.  It will drill the hole and tap at one shot.  Here is what they look like.  Good luck. http://www.graybar.com/store/en/gb/combination-drill-tap-bits-22082167?cm_mmc=pla:google-_-googleshopping-_-gb5349-_-22082167&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Graybar>PLA>Category&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=fto6JW9w|pcrid|49843833890|pkw||pmt|&gclid=CPzt0MP72tACFYKSfgodC4MH_g
